About the Poems
by Steve Fellner
I believe in ghosts, and I hope these poems do not anger Matthew Shepard’s ghost. I do not mean any harm. I want to get at something, and this is the only way I know how.
Also: I want to mention one of my favorite poems that came out last year. It is “I Am the Boy Who Is Tied Down” by Charles Jensen which appeared in MiPOesias, edited by David Trinidad in 2007. It gave me something to aspire to.
