âI liked âI Have Lost my Pity for Bonesâ best. Thereâs something of The Poet in NewYork surrealism in it.â
Marvin Bell

âI did receive the âDeux Megotsâ anthology and enjoyed it, among them your poem âIdentities,â especially the sudden ârain-soaked battlementsâ.â
Robert Bly

âThanks for sending the poems. ... it is a special pleasure to have your work.â
Paul Engle

âThe poems that get to me the strongest are the ones colloquial, imagist and rhythmically strong or, put another way, in which the rhythm is quite pronounced and often forceful: âScorpio Rising,â âThe Death of the Spanish Cantante,â âI Have Lost my Pity for Bones,â and others which sound to me the most natural and free flowing and apparently come from deep within you.â
David Ignatow

âYou have the courage to address very basic things with strength and a few well-chosen words. Itâs a tough thing to do and I admire it.â
Paul Zimmer
