    Thanks so much for the insights. And special thanks for the Detroit poem. I often wonder if my childhood there (in that same time frame) was the catalyst for all my later breathing woes. It was powerful for me to have the voice of someone adult at the time say “Yes, this is sick.”

    Bravo, Joe! Levine touched so many of us in this generation after his. I was as impacted by his lecture/essay “Mine Own John Berryman” as much as by his poems. One of the good ones.
