some Michael McNeilley (aka mcn) links/poems i've found: (these were last tested on 10-16-08)
-- i think that 7 out of every 10 mcn poems are about love - for
all us lobsters and dogs and humans -
love poems are my favorites - i try to write them and sometimes i succeed - the trick, i've found, is to paraphrase a mcneilley poem -
this works pretty well as long as no one has read his stuff.

McNeilley wrote most
of these poems in an old house in

in the backyard where the spirit of his dead brother sits on clear nights, the ghost of a baby possum
on his shoulder, and paints moonlight on clouds high across the Sound.
