Karl Stuart Kline
I can offer no better biography than the one that was required of me when 'Going Without Peggy' was in the 2006 (published 2005) Pulitzer competition.
It can be seen in full on my web site, www.poeticat.com along with several of my poems, pictures of our cats and other relevant material.
2007- an adaptation of the Pulitzer biography was published by Leicester Review of Books in the UK, subsequently becoming one of their top ten visited pages for three months straight!

(3.12) A Thousand Poems (A Quest that's never ending...)
A thousand poems a day
Went parading through my head
Confusion reigned supreme,
A skein of tangled threads...
Each blends into the other,
Without beginning or end,
Telling one from another
Or even finding a trend
Would be difficult at best,
But I’d seize a single thread
And follow it through the maze,
Mindless of where it led,
Weaving the cloth it made
Into a coat of many colors
Ranging from sunshine bright
To those that are dark and dolorous
For each thread is different,
