    I have only read the poems listed here on PoemHunter of Dana Gioia - but that was enough to realize what a talented poet he is. I only wish I could write as well. His style is so natural and unforced, and he writes about seemingly unimportant things or hugely important ones and makes both leave a lasting impression upon his readers. When some-one says 'But I don't know what to write about' they should read Dana Gioia and find out that anything can be made the subject of a poem.

    Fantastic. The poems are so quiet- like the things they talk about. And, they fulfill my wish: poems have to be short and strong enough to hold the reader's attention. Congratulations and cheers!

    'Thanks for remembering us'

    That is just what we feel - in ways that we cannot usually describe.

    Thank you

Money

Money is a kind of poetry.
- Wallace Stevens

Money, the long green,
cash, stash, rhino, jack
or just plain dough.

Chock it up, fork it over,
shell it out. Watch it
