"Winston Churchill once said of Clement Attlee that he had 'a great deal to be modest about.' So do I. Attlee did beat Churchill in that election though."

 

I'm nobody, really.  I call myself "The Lucky Little Bastard" because I came back from the dead when I was nineteen; that was quite a trick, but I can't take credit for it.  God has been good to me; they say he takes care of those of us who don't have enough sense to take care of ourselves.

 

I was born and raised and still live in the old family home, the last and least, in Old Towne Orange, California.  I share Studio Lance, as I call it, with my good old fat old cat, Freddie Noodles.

 

I have three wonderful children to whom I refer as "intelligent friends": Maria, 21, Stevie II, 19, and Teddy, 14; I enjoy their company and our close relationships very much.  Otherwise I pretty much keep to myself, a recluse, something of an enigma to many.

 

I drive the 1965 Chrysler Newport Sedan I picked out for my grandparents when it was new, but it hasn't been running lately.  I like to walk here in Old Towne, especially in warmer weather.  I'm a skinny little guy, very sensitive to cold, very sensitive in general, actually. 

 

I'd like to get to be a good poet before I die, if I can; I'm doing my best.  I'm fifty years old now, born on New Year's Eve amid thunder and lightning in 1954.  Everybody always seemed to think I'd amount to something special, starting off with a bang like that, and then also coming back from the dead like I did.  I was in a coma for awhile, and supposedly my brain was completely destroyed.  Nobody understands, least of all me, why I am here or what I am doing or how.  I know I'm really curious about everything; that's the why of it.

 

I got to be really good at composing a cappella choral motets along the way; I like counterpoint.  I've learned a few things here and there, even won some awards and things which don't really matter.  To my mind--such as it is--kindness is the only thing which really matters; I want to be kind. 

 

I am a simple and an honest man, and I want to be remembered as a kind man too.

 

New Poems is my fifth book of poetry.  I hope you like it.  Feel free to look me up anytime and get in touch.  Call me up and I'll read you some poems.

 

God bless and keep you.

There is something to be said for reclusion. I never understood metric feet, or even counting syllables. I find that when I try to force a phrase I create crap. Actually, I have a feeling a great deal of what comes off my finger tips is crap, but it gives me pleasure, so I go on with it. I wonder though, do you actually count your syllables or are you just aware that they fit?

I'm not sure I know what you are all about, but I enjoyed your explaination of why.

Peace
