  1. I am a poet as well, and I usually get the patronizing pat in !my hand with a, ” Well, isn’t that nice?” or better yet, when I an at a reading and I excitedly tell people that I got published, there ius always line joker who asks in a condescending tone, “Did you get paid?” True, poetry isn’t for everyone, but after I finished my MFA in Creative Writing in Fiction, I was, as a very dear friend of mine said once at her open mic, seduced to the dark side of the world of poetic dreamscapes, and I never regretted the decision. Poetry is my life now and if I never get paid for writing, that’s fine. I am in thus four the long haul.
