    You are a breath of fresh air, Mike, a welcome addition to our little dysfunctional family. From the poetry of yours that I have read, I am quite impressed with you as a word artist. Your sense of humor and devil-may-care attitude about critics or self-proclaimed experts is fun to play with. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    Mike, I tried to find words to express what your poems mean to me...

    You have shamed me Mike! You have made me laugh, you have made me think more than twice. You have chastised me for many a vice, but you have also always been nice. I have been slight in my comments of your work, because there are so many of my subjects to spead myself amongst, but you are a poet of fine imagery and insight, stretching back through a long and successful career. You are a fair and fine man and an inspiration to all who read you. Is that ok? lol Grinning at you, Tai

Best Poem of Mike Finley

Denis Joe

i hear the chime of the poem's voice
and in the notes you write
a guy who hungers for truth and tells it too
who understands that pain is the face
of injustice in an off-kilter world
some feel a lot, some shoosh through life
as through an operation

and I know what it is like to fall forever
and wonder how there coud be
anything additional below
no whiskered root to grab hold of
but this is not all there is
or why we were so intense for so long
why rage against a world
that can't help being broken?

your fire is proof that fire ...
