Hey Todd,

I just wanted to thank you for including me in your list of poets you believe in. I cannot express how much it means to me for a poet of your caliber to hold me in such high esteem. I am extremely honored.

I’ve been playing phone tag with Joe and Christopher for about a week now but they have both told me not to worry about getting a poetry gig. They’ll be happy just to hang out here for a week. Once they get here we’ll contact you about getting together for dinner one night. I’m looking forward to that. Talk to ya later, thanks again!
