Dear Poet Pecuniary,

Poets are way under appreciated. I enjoy reading poems out loud, feeling the words in my mouth, tasting the language. I know how tough it is to write poetry well. You have the shortest amount of space to convey character, story, description & emotion, longer to do so in a short story, longer still in a novel. That’s why, after years of torturing language in bad poetry, I stick to mostly to novel-length work.

And why, when I read good stuff, I gotta call it. Keep writing! All thumbs up! 👍🏼 👍🏼 👍🏼
