"Poetry is
indispensable -

if only I knew what for."

 

Jean Cocteau

 

 

 

"In a world where poetry

is a contest at best

and a competition at worst,

where the importance of a painting

is gauged by the price it can be sold for -

we are to be counted among the lost."

 

Walter Mosley


Performing at Milton, Florida
