A List Of Differences Between Myself And Walt Whitman...


 Differences Between Myself and Walt Whitman

My ancestors are not buried in the Old Whitman and Van Velsor Cemeteries
I am not the poet of women as well as men
I do not continually notate my thoughts in a 3 ½ “ X 5 ½ “ notebook
I am not the poet of little things and of babes
I have never walked alone on the shore of Coney Island
I am not the poet of the body
I have not had a short conversation with either General Lafayette or Edgar Allen Poe
I am not the poet of the soul
I only have 16 gigs of memory on my iPod Touch
