Terrific, Mitch. My favorite is "The Door is Always Open," though it is hard to beat the last line of "The Packard Eucalyptus" (or the poem's first word, for that matter). "Norby" is, among other things, a play on the triolet as a verse form. Anyway. . .bravo.

I love the voice of the speaker. I get an entire presence, physique, wardrobe, tone of voice---maybe even a little bit of a hitch in his gait.
