I live on my own terms so I can live with myself — hopefully with compassion and honor, still singing the wonders of what we can achieve for ourselves and others. It’s what I believe the poet's role demands he do in such times. In bad times more than ever, he is the purveyor of hope, of sanity, of possibility, whether people listen to him or not.
