It is my wish to have a permanent collection of poems by artists I've met in person and also those whom I meet in chatrooms. You, as a newcomer, are most welcome to submit your poems for my discretion, and I may or may not include one or several of your poems to join in the spirit, atmosphere and mood that I've tried to create with the collection of my photographic art. That is my wish, and I do hope you, the general public, will be satisfied with the final results. With the best of intentions, Carl Toothman Halmstad, Sweden January 26, 1997
"A poem, of any sort, is the song of the soul, not a pious collection of words and grammar. Rather it is a lone spirit, crying to the cosmos, hoping for people with vision to grasp the meaning which words alone cannot convey."
Neal Franklin Jerome III circa '94
