my credentials as a serious poet = (& my Dad's everyday account executive) #LifeStyleDirections

"you have the ability to fire-off history like Walt Whitman; the sexual imagery of Henry Miller; and the navigational skills of Jim Morrison." - is what literary giant, beloved professor & expert psychoanalyst, Wallace Fowlie, stated after I read him some of my selected poems in his home in Chapel Hill, NC.
I phoned him later and asked him to put his reaction to my private reading in writing and this is what I received via the U.S. Mail. It sounds more scholarly & academic and more of what my father, Attny John Conte, would approve in regards to his poet / account executive son.

Best of the Roses,
