    I ordered ‘Internal West’ from my local Borders bookstore after reading an interview you gave in Poets & Writers back in 2003 (I think). Your poems are the best I have ever read and I am so excited to see you have another collection coming out. Through the years since first reading you, I have searched for more of your work through my local bookstores. A similar search on my computer led me to your site, which I have bookmarked.

    I think your poems are amazing and they continue to inspire me to write and refine my own poems.

    Thank you so much for adding beauty to the world through your poems.
