Larry thinks all poetry is local. The place you are enters your voice and shapes your poems. He thinks poetry is alive and well but, like Alcoholics Anonymous, a helluva lot more people need its services. But poetry builds its own community of poet-publishers and eager listeners. You can't…

Old Walnut Tree

The old walnut tree still stands tall yet dying

down by the creek between the graveyard and my brother's house

still teaches lessons to its English Walnut children

Thanks for your response to my post about Harrison Ridley. Don't know if you're from Philly and knew of him but, well, he was a beautiful soul.
