Benjamin Myers: “The first real poem I wrote was for a girl when I was in high school, and, since I have now been married to her for almost twenty years, I guess I started off with an inflated sense of poetry’s ability to make things happen. Even if I rarely see comparable results from poems these days, poetry has become a way of being for me, and I couldn’t imagine my life without it.” (web)
