Follow up to yesterday's posted poem.
On Facebook, I posted the poem LEARN TO CRY DRY TEARS, based on something which happened at a poetry venue last night. Here is a response by a long-running Major Figure in Los Angeles poetry: Suzanne Lummis But does writing and reading poetry make you happy? At least half the time? If it doesn't, why not seek out something that does? As the expression goes, "life is too short..." My response: Writing and reading poetry makes me happy. But there are plenty of mean boys and girls in our community. In short, please don't say to me, "it's not us, it's you.". Things aren't that clearcut.
