Security by S.M.(M).L.
All these things make us feel secure:

while the house burns around them.
There's a poet in my soul; she's always been there, but is often neglected. I'm letting her out here. I hope you will too.

Here you'll find ideas about how to hone your craft as I practice mine and lead you to some of my favorite published poems and poets.
