“What I love about poetry is, when it works, there’s always something inscrutable, mysterious.  Something that makes us ponder what is, who we are, who the poet is, and so on.  Your poems do it!  No point in me getting all caught up in a conundrum of words, when all I mean to say is I love YOU poems!!!”  -Brenda Dixon Gottschild
