Paul,

I can't wait to read this. I love your work!!! I wondered if you had any thoughts on the stuff like 'wheelchair bound' and sort of 'overcoming' story and so on? It doesn't seem to describe your position as an active poet/ teacher.

Well, all that stuff you mention is in keeping with the larger discussion that's been going on here. I'm not angry about that reading of past events; I've worked hard in my life, creatively and professionally, to be much more than that, a reading which is kind of reductive. But, I realize that many people, usually without thinking, fall into that sort of narrative. A difficult thing happened to me when I was a kid, but that was long, long ago. I understand that most people, however, don't share my experience and project on to me their own fears, concerns, and sympathies. Learning takes time and perspective. That's ok with me.

Awesome! Can't wait to read it. I was going to say congratulations on being one of the last people to be reviewed by Kirkus, since it was supposed to have been closed soon -- but did you know it's gotten a last-minute reprieve by the guy who owns the Indiana Pacers? Who also owns an independent bookstore. Weird.
