To borrow a phrase from film credits, please be aware that no actual person, living or dead, should be construed as represented in "Touch Red," or any of my poems—except where mentioned expressly by name, of course. The verse has been hewn out of welters of experience fertilized by imagination—and vice versa. Welcome to my world.


If you would like to know more about "touching red," feel free to get in touch in person, and we can start making a rainbow.
