I find I cannot do without poetry . . . I began with a little, but habit has made me a leviathan.”                                                                     John Keats

A nineteenth-century romantic poetic trying to get by in the 21st-century.

    Out of curiosity, have you ever read Carson McCullers’s The Heart is a Lonely Hunter or Bread Givers by Anzia Yezierska? I think you might like them. I discovered your poems tacked up on the bulletin board outside of the Library. I liked your poem Pauper’s Soul so much I sort of stole it from the bulletin. Sorry…

    • Hi Ellie
      Thanks for getting in touch about the poems. I have read and love The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. The 1968 movie adaptation starring Alan Arkin still lingers in my memory to this day. I will add Bread Givers to my ever-growing reading list.
      I thought someone from the library had removed the poem for violation of kiosk etiquette. I am glad to know you liked it enough to take it with you. I am hoping other students (yourself included?) will begin posting their poems there.
      I fixed my semicolons and re-arranged a line on The Pauper’s Soul on this site. PM
