He says, “I’m not really a poet. I just dangle figures on a little stage to share insights and poke fun. Everyone from Robert Frost to Charles Bukowski, Ivor Winters to Alan Ginsberg and Anne Sexton are responsible for showing me how to do this, but there are other perpetrators, I fear. I’m not as much a poet as a puppeteer.”
