Poetry

I don’t write a lot of poetry, but I’ve always written a certain amount of it. Some feelings want to come out as poems, and once in a while I want to write something that doesn’t lend itself to prose. Unlike prose, I generally don’t write poetry with publication in mind, although it’s often aimed at a specific audience. In some cases I’ve altered specific or identifying references to people, and I’ve added some comments and notes below the poems, but otherwise they’re in their original form.

This section will probably be a little sparse for a while, until I decide what I feel like sharing and what stays private.
