"Glad to see Richard's work here. He looks at human affairs with the vision of an ultrasound: never invasive, but seeing well below the skin."

I asked Damien if I could use his work in The Sunday Poem, and was thrilled when he sent me the same poem. He read it again at the NHCC memorial…See More

Was it you who posted the Frida and Diego poem? Stunning! I sent copies to a dozen friends. In fact that poem , which I read on Jon Knudson's blog, was a major reason I tracked down Duke City. The other reason is that if I ever move back to the States, it would be to live in or around Albuquerque.
