About the Poems - SA
About the Poemsby Samuel Amadon When I was in the Fifth Grade, we took a test to determine whether we would communicate best by speaking or writing. I was told I would communicate best "mentally," which is to say, I would soon learn how to thumb-wrestle myself. Often, I believe a sonnet's about the right size for making things up. I have never had the best relationship with animals. Often, I like to have a poem be one sentence. I once was an altar boy. I've been once to the Cloisters. When I was in College, the Government built Lasers near my Apartment. If there was such a thing as The Connecticut School of Poets, these poems would trade bourbon and erasers with Michael Schiavo.
