I believe I’ve shared some of Todd Boss’ work on this blog before, but I feel inclined to share more. He’s a fantastic poet who weaves heady strands of music through his work, unlike so many of his contemporaries. He’s actually a very nice guy, too. I was so moved by his first collection that I sought him out and sent a friendly email his way. He replied in only a day or two with kinds words and a lot of appreciation. One of my favorite things about the world of poetry is that it’s no secret the people on the other end of the pen are real, genuine people, and they’re usually more than happy to hear from their readers. That being said, enjoy some lovely Todd Boss poetry.
