Ted Greenwald is one of Kyle's favorite poets. Kyle is one of my favorite people and someone whose taste I respect a great deal. So when I scan a table of contents and come across Ted Greenwald's name, it is like we are already acquainted. Friends of friends at a crowded party. The introductions have been made and there is a little bit of back story. I tend to gravitate to his poems and spend a little extra time with them. I am never disappointed. Greenwald's poems speak to me and I always enjoy the conversation.
