Russell Bradbury-Carlin: “No matter how much I’ve tried not to write poetry, I can’t seem to shake the desire and obsession. I’ve told myself that I’m the owner of a house cleaning business, a world traveler, a husband, and most recently the director of a batterer’s intervention program, but I keep finding myself sneaking away to my writing desk, scribbling away.”
