Cut Diamond is my first suite of poems, written or compiled in 2008.

It was in response mainly to the loss of a very good friend during 2007.

Some of these words have been put to music.

    As I said somewhere in there, I love you poetry, it’s so alive in the best possible ways. I don’t feel I can comment on the order yet…this may be better experienced as hard copy. But I will reread later. I have just finished the whole list and feel that I need some perspective. Congratulations, however. I thoroughly enjoyed the reading and think that your work is very sophisticated and very touching and very beautiful!!!!!!!

    Tomorrow, I will lay out all the poems – think about something like – morning, afternoon, evening, night as divisions or perhaps different states of consciousness. The poems don’t fit the simple division of night/dreams/sleep. You could alternate between sleeping and waking.

    Also let’s skip Extension 1 tomorrow. Focus on your major work!
