    I used to write this kind of poem all the time—not often successfully (whatever that means). Then "something happened," as they say; it was as if I lost touch with the telluric level of the psyche. There's poetry everywhere, of course, but I enjoy writing "somewhere" poems most of all.

    Joseph,<br /><br />the &quot;somewhere&quot; series seem to take the simply &#39;imagal&#39; into the realm of sensation. Subject-matter (whether insect cannibalism, vacancy of limo riches or diamond mine savagery)turns into a &quot;flesh&quot; of the world to which we can&#39;t remain indifferent.<br /><br />As William Michaelian would say, I have more feelings than words for verses like these.
