Marshall Smithis creating Poems
About Marshall Smith
I have been writing poetry and essays as an amateur for 25 years. I studied these things in college, but that doesn't really count. Influences are Neko Case, Wallace Stevens, Adrienne Rich, Wallace Stevens, Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Frost and Mary Karr, though I have tried to shake off the influence through the years. Communicate with me about the poems if you wish. We need communication now to cut through the bitterness in society. You may find some anger in the writing, but that is a natural expression of our state, internal and external.
