By the way, my poems are part of a series of poems inspired by Christian Hawkey's fabulous book, THE BOOK OF FUNNELS. I loved the poems so much that I wrote a poem after each of the poems in Hawkey's book (the series will appear in my forthcoming collection NOTA BENE EISWEIN). I mention Hawkey not just as background but because it's, of course, rare when an artist's work can so move someone in the way that Hawkey's book did. Check out his FUNNELS book, why dontcha!
