I agree with Mike. His list fits you so much better than the list you posted. I know sometimes it's hard to see past the negative crap that spews forth, but I could sit here and poke the holes through most of that list one by one. Instead, I'll just tell you that I hope you come back to this post somewhere down the road and see the progress that you made. I hope that I'm around to see it and congratulate you.
And thanks for dragging me into the Poetry Forum. I don't understand 99.44% of it, but I'm here....
