My poems are copyrighted, some by rights through publication, others through formal U.S. copyright application. This notice is legal assertion of my rights as creator and owner of my work. Under no circumstances does their appearance here or on any other website belonging to me grant usage rights to anyone else.
Linking is welcome, as is use of excerpts in such links constituting no more than 10% of any poem or group of poems. Other reuse without my explicit written permission is illegal. It is also the act of a thief and a coward. Asking is always the sensible and moral approach.
