    leaving a paragraph on the web is easy but responding can be difficult if you don’t control yourself if people don’t agree with what you saying. if giving details nice and calmly can result in a better paragraph

    In this story, the part that is an anecdote is where the write states,”In 1995 I was part of a show at the Kennedy Center, but I was sneaking beers into my dressing room before the show and getting high after. I often feel a sense of pride when I put my book and loose poems in my bag before going to do a reading. And yet, I am also this other person — this shadow, this vampire.”
