Thanks to

Jennifer Drake Thornton for quoting from one of my poems at the very tip-top of her blog:

  • But the funny thing is I couldn't remember which poem was being quoted. Heh. I had to open up my old Word file for my book and search for the phrase. This is not uncommon with my poems.

    Hey, I just write 'em.

    Well, you know, quotation is the sincerest form of flattery .... wait, that's not right, is it? Seriously, I can't remember which poem either. I dip into your book at random on a regular basis, and that just jumped out at me. There seems to be so much darkness about lately, and headlining your words is a great way to bite my thumb in its general direction. Your optimist poem is lovely, too. I want to believe.

    It's from "Elegy for Qwerty."

    Same thing with my poems, Paul. Or: have you ever had a line pop into your head that seems really familiar (or, better, really fantastic), think someone else wrote it, and then realize that you actually wrote it? Yeah.
