Response to malthaussen (Original post)

1. Well, this is just off the top of my head, my dear malthaussen...

Poets need to write, no question. But what good is it if nobody sees, or better yet, hears it? It's like the tree falling in the forest.

I recently read 9 of my own works before a group of riveted listeners, and I brought down the house. I was at the top of my form; I had never read better.

I moved them.

It needed to be done, and I did it. Maybe you should try going to some open mics and reading your stuff. You might be surprised at the reaction...

If you only speak for one person............it is enough.
