Hey Dillon,

Thanks for props. the Actually, I found Deep Oakland and realized it was the ideal placed to have these poems--many published separately over the years--appear together. Deep Oakland is a great idea and I want to help it grow. Our city has a lot of ugliness and pain going on, most of it caused by poverty and racism and despair. But the more we confront it and make good art out of the humanity that is there: in the lost, the brutalized, the victim and the victimizer alike, as well as all the beauty and diversity and humor--the stronger the real foundation of our city.
