Every now and then I surprise myself with an original thought that actually makes sense.
When asked why I write so much “poetry” I came to the conclusion that writing, for me, really is a fantastic escape, a chance to connect, to travel, to remember, to imagine, to accept what has passed then to ignore it all in the same sentence all without ever leaving my desk.
Poetry for me is an enriching subject be it reading the giants of the medium or shouting obscenities at the obvious.
Alas my poetry won’t alleviate the poverty of my bank balance but the more I read the richer I become.
