Marcus Speh – Oct 25, 2011

thanks dj for your comment on "<a href="">the sodomized dictator</a>" — i appreciate it. a couple of people have called this "eloquent" which sounds as if you'd read it as a political message, which it is not, of course...just an expression of my own ambivalence, boiled in the poetic cauldron of a flash soup cook, ie a lay man in every direction the wind blows.

David Ackley – Oct 22, 2011

thanks, DJ, for taking a look and commenting on "Base."

Joani Reese – Sep 01, 2011

Hi DJ: I appreciate the time you took to find and read my poem "The Human Condition." I'm happy you liked it. Best.
