Thank you Richard Greene!

–At Mississauga’s P.K.Page event, I gave Richard Greene my book and graceciouly he gave me his GGs winning book “Boxing the Compass“.  After my vacation to Cuba last year, I was very happy to received his words for my book. Now after his permission, I decided to post it here:

You have an affinity with the Imagists, a group of poets I think fascinating. The poems are certainly heartfelt and mysterious (in a good way!). You have a knack for saying things simply and evocatively. You should defend this gift! Many people never achieve it. … You have mapped out a technique for yourself and you should continue to explore its possibilities. It will be a long time before you have exhausted the style you have developed.                                        —Richard Greene
