In 1983 I wrote 35poems.

I began to be prolific once more. Out of the poetry slumps, and into some of my best work. Beginning with "Symphony For One", and including "State of Mind" my sarcastic bent and poetic soul merged for one fantastic year, yielding in retrospect some of my best work. I believe I matured in 1983, nearing my third decade on the planet. I worked for Gemco in 1983, and the girl in my life was Leslie, a hostess at one of my frequent restaurants.
