A Dull Sound, Varying Now And Again

As an Englishman living in the Canary Islands: a writer and poet, I came across Forrest´s poems on the Internet and was immediately drawn to his style of writing. The poem Origins had a profound impact on me as Forrest touched on the subjects of sexual orientation and race. As I am visiting the UK in August I intend to buy the three books, ¨Rift¨, ¨Middle Ear¨and ¨Call & Response¨. Should Forrest ever write an autobiography then I would be first in the queue. Keep writing Forrest and thank you. Keith Jeffries

Hello Forrest. My name is Larry B. Stell; just completed a book of poetry and I have several poems on this website, poemhunter.com, under my name. Your comments in the poem, Lesson, reminded me of a trip I took from a university summer program in Colorado back to Little Rock, Arkansas. The director asked if Jimmy Lieb, a student (African American) could ride with me and my German wife back to Little Rock, about 1965....my wife and I were refused service in a restaurant in Oklahoma but the owner said he had to, by law, serve Jimmy. I think I will use this as a theme in a forthcoming poem.......any ideas? Larry B. Stell, poet/writer
