Your poem ".50-cal. Gunner" strikes a chord about the war in the Middle East that is not presented enough> I am having my senior Humanities class read your poem as part of our poetry reading awareness series this semester. I'll keep you informed about their reactions.

Thank you, Vincent! I appreciate you using the poem with your students. Let me know if I can help in any way.

Your poems are mostly better, mostly more personally evocative, and mostly less stylistic than this one, an okay piece, but not one I would have chosen from your stack, which is to say I admire your work tremendously, even when you pause to stand back and paint the occasional formal portraits Mr. Muldoon prefers to hang in his gallery.
