I think I’ve found my favorite poet of the week! He’s the author of one of Gene Wilder’s best lines from Charlie & the Chocolate Factory: “Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker.” Reading his poetry is like giving yourself a warm witty smile. It’s somewhere in the vein of Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss, but much […]
