Hey, You! You Inspire Me.

Writing poetry before an open mic.
Thanks, Adam Robinson! Your words
Inspire me–plus I like the picture
On the cover of your book.
When clean-shaven, I wonder
How long it takes you to grow
Your beard out again. I have trouble
Growing full beards, so I wonder
About these things. I also want to thank
You for introducing me to Chris Toll;
Not directly, but you published his work
And I purchased his book and was inspired.

I think it is nice to let writers know
When they inspire me. I do it when
I can, before the opportunity is lost.
