Quote: “I start most of my poems with “A poet I’m not, but for you I will try.’ Two or three years ago a staff member left us to go work at another department in RIT. I first became aware of it through an e- mail message from her. When I read it I just sort of reared back and said, “Oh, no–you can’t go. This is going to hurt us so.’ And before I knew it I had four lines of rhyme. So I stretched it out to about 12 and read it at her going-away party. (Writing poetry) is not something I would have thought to be me 15 or 20 years ago.”
