i am human
by which i do not mean
i have excuses for imperfection
but by which i mean
there’s plenty individual
to go around
by which I mean
I do not have the patience to read essays,
and I do not find poems
about the Australian bush
nearly as captivating
as those of human nature.

    I found this touching and grand in it subtle sweep about human nature.

    Human nature is indeed far more intriguing and stimulating.

    Do keep your poems coming – always eager to read.

    So true. Human nature is far more compelling and profound. I’ve only begun to read your stuff but so far I have been more then entertained. Keep it up. I look forward to diving into the rest of your stuff.
