-Thomas J. Fallica Author of Midnight Musings and Oceans,
a collection of his poetry
Charles Bukowski once said "Writing about a writer's block is better than not writing at all." And so, armed with that insight, I sort of knew that there really isn't such a thing as writer's block for the process of writing is a subject unto itself. OR: A writer is writing when he is staring out the window. (Burton Rascoe) And so, I stare out the window a lot...waiting for the muse to appear; waiting for the words to flow into my form junkie mind and out through my quill. I believe that in a writer's mind even a crayon becomes a quill; I believe that poetry is the majesty of any language; I believe that I'll go stare out a window for a bit. BUT, when Rascoe deserts me and my muse is vacationing in Algiers...when no poetry, about gods and fates and love and such wishes to be captured on the page, I revert to Bukowski and write about writing. I should like to think that my poetry is not afraid to admit that it is poetry.
