The poems in "Of Muse and Pen" range from general commentaries on writing to frustrations I’ve had in learning specific poetic techniques; the joyful burst of inspiration to lamentations when it fizzles to dust; the arduous, annoying process of submitting poetry for publication to the self-indulgent pleasure of having them accepted. In other words, it covers the broad spectrum of writing poetry.

There is little for the timid or weak of heart. Nor will the optimist find much grist for his or her mill. There are sparks, but not of hope. They are the kind which start disagreements ending in red-mist. Driven, too far, without reason. Scarred, too early, without resolution. Inside there may be insight, but there is nothing to envy in viewing the world from this man's point of view.

I've been feeling in recent months the infinitesimal boundary between ourself and the sublime. And the veneer DOES disappear. And then and only then do true poems come out. All the writing I have ever done, is just a means of wearing away that layer: being ever closer to the moment, the moment that does not end. If these poems are conduits to the sublime, then so is every man and every woman.
