Well I'd certainly be interested to read your review of Kei Miller's collection after being so impressed by him at the Book festival! And your poems too of course!

Crafty, I've never heard him read in person. I've only been impressed by his work on paper.

The Caribbean Writer sure sounds like the place to be right now. Two "new" poems by you, and Opal's work. And discovering Kei Miller...

Rethabile, it's one of the best in years--if I must say so myself...
