When we were in Secondary School, I was a member of the School Literature and Library Club. We had a literature lesson, almost everyday, where we read the old writers such as Charles Dickens and George Eliot etc. So we learnt to appreciate words even though it was our second language. Anyway, I like how you evaluate poems, Missy.

My favourite is Robert Frost among others.

The same question and why?

Truth is, Im uncultured. Ive never been much of a reader. It bores me. Not the content, but the act itself. So, I recognize the names of the great poets but I haven't read enough of any particular poet to say they are my favorite. Ive read more poetry since joining this site then I have in my entire life. Maybe that's why I don't care for all the abstract stuff. The poems that feel like they are hiding the intention under a lot of...fancy words and wordplay. I just dont get them.

Anyway, since that isn't really an answer to who my favorite poet is, let's stick with that question and let someone with taste answer.

Iím in love with spoken word poets - Fleassy Malay. Rachel Wiley. Hollie McNish. Eric Sirota. Rudy Francisco.

Written poets - Gregory Orr. Donald Hall. Wallace Stevens. Anne Sexton. Ella Frears.

I donít think I could pick one.

I would however advise maybe listening to more of spoken word artists if you canít bear the act of reading. It really brings it alive.

I dont really have any people in my life currently. I'm not a big fan of myself so...

Do you prefer being a leader, a member of the crew or running solo?

I do like running solo. But a member of the crew isnít a bad place to be.

You keep hitting all my weak spots. I dont really own much right now. My life has been in shambles since the divorce and I cant find the motivation to do a damn thing about it. I live a very small existence.

I'd like to hear yours, though.
