I am always amazed when a writer can connect "real" individuals that never meet. It opens a whole new dialogue of what if. I had a similar experience except it was with the photographs of Dorothea Lange. We were a generation removed but her photography was current to where my soul was and they spoke. Tell Them That You Saw me but didn't see me Saw, became the book of my dialogue with her art. WWW:moonpiepress.com Tom(TA)Delmore www.crowsperch@blogspot.com

Worse than literary parasitism is this sort of grave robbery. Can't you wanna-be poets make anything up? Have you no imaginations, only appetites for being someone other than what your breeders produced?
