I don't know Sean, you seem like a different person/writer. This is excellent.

Ah... I'm a foolish literary chameleon. I have a book called: "An Ode To Id" coming out through Publish America but it won't have my most recent work. Watch for my new poem: "A Tree Grows In Hades."

Thanks to everybody who read this piece. There have been places in my life where nice comments about my literature is about all that got me through.
Brad, you'd be welcome to turn this into a coffee-table book if you have the art supplies and the inclination. I think it's a cool idea myself but I'm not any kind of an artist.
