We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service.

This Writer

By the false light of incandescence,
short lines, a yellowed folio
inseminates an imagination
better suited to the mundane.

Richard Wilbur's "The Writer"
with it's humped and bloody,
iridescent crow,
sowing seeds in fetid soil.

In need of inspiration,
a dilettante's pecking, pauses,
(life and death,)
near an open window,
waiting to try again...

I wish him a lucky passage.
