"Why am I responsible?"
Because you're the most responsible.
Because you care the most.
Because if no one else does it, you will.
Because they know you will.
Because you assume they're incompetent.
Because you don't ask.
Because you don't tell.
Because you assume they don't care.
Because they don't; not as much as you.
..and here are a few things to keep in mind:
This blog contains mostly my poetry and a few thoughts from time to time. The thoughts will be entered when and wherever I feel necessary to keep things in proper order. Thoughts and things not belonging to me will be denoted with asterisks. Poems will be archived by the date which they were written, not by that which they were posted. I tend to update things a month or few after being written so as to keep current issues from wandering unattended around the web.

“The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish.”
