Keep 'em coming, AZ. Can't tell you how much I'm enjoying these.

Alan Ziegler--
Are you the same Alan Ziegler who came into my 7th grade classroom at Wagner Junior High School in 1976 and started me on a lifetime of loving poetry and writing? I think I still have a poem I wrote in that workshop, and we even had a book of poems that you printed up and put together us, probably on a "rexograph" machine.
I teach freshman writing at NYU now. Can I get you to come and teach a class? Or can I at least treat you to a cup of coffee?

Rina,

Indeed I am the same (though perhaps the intervening 38 years have changed me a bit), and I remember you and your work! I still have the Wagner book. Let's follow up by email: az8@columbia.edu.

jim c,

This means so much to me, and pieces will keep coming!
