DEAR FRIENDS, JUNE 4, 2012

Dear Friends,

Quite by accident this week, I came across the Wikipedia definition of poetry. Here it is:

“Poetry is a form of literary art which uses the aesthetic qualities of language to evoke meanings in addition to, or in place of, the prosaic ostensible meaning.”

Finally I understand why I’m not a poet and most poets don’t consider what I write poetry.

My goal in life and in poetry hasĀ always been to be as prosaic as possible.

More next week.

Sincerely, David Budbill
