His words shimmer in the recesses of our minds and cause us to both dread and hope that we will, at last, find what is there, and has been there—for a long time. Yes, he sheds enough light to do this and still leave us wondering—forever provoked into being more human by asking questions to which the possible answers require us to be more introspective and may be more pertinent to our lives. These answers just may lie somewhere between honesty and vulnerability; for sure, though, they show this poet's sense of the common issues that run through the psyche of man.
His poetry unmasks us and plays peek-a-boo with us—at the same time!
