… Let me tell you about it all, all.

Let me sum it up again with an awkward, imprecise cascade.

… Truth is a mighty volume of epigrams and paradoxes.

… Real truth is caught in a single word,

… And the ultimate truth bleeds even now in a-

Wretched mess of skinless time. Time!!

… The last living poetess just crossed the fence and told all her secrets.

So, now I can’t even try to script bad poetry anymore.

I am a professor, a poet, an author, and an immigrant. I am the survival of many political and economical hardship. As a political immigrant, it took me a long time to master the English language and to come to terms that I can never see my family again. "THE PARTING FROM MY FAMILY WAS THE BEGINNING OF A FRIENDSHIP THAN THE END OF OUR FRIDAYS!" My autobiography, "THE RAIN STOPS IN TEXAS" was published in 1997 by Eakin Press. It can be found in Amazon. As Ernest Hemingway says, write about something you know, most of my novels are about cultural difference of the old and new and American style of living compare to my home country. My poetry are in all forms. I write as they come to me. My first draft is always my last draft. "THIS IS MY WORLD, WELCOME!" "THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE!"
