I wrote “The Wolf of the Steps,” my first poem when I was fifteen years old. I had just complete Herman Hesse’s Steppenwolf, which was also the first book I ever finished. I can’t say that I understood the book even though I knew who was being described in that book.
Ever since that initial encounter, I have written poetry, not as a profession but as a necessary expression of myself in the world.
Fifty-two years later, Finishing Line Press will be publishing my first book of poetry, THE DARK DIARY: in 27 refracted moments.
