Just Above Sunset has never had a poetry section. In the first year one or two were published, but no one has contributed any since then. Philips Raines, however, offers the following.
His comment -
I have had poems published in compilations and have featured at spoken word venues, and yesterday I had a poem published in a local paper. A friend, a long time band mate and poetry activist, submitted a poem I sent for another compilation.
I would never try to convert anybody towards an enjoyment of poetry - like converting some one toward atheism or Christianity. I came by it naturally. My father would read me poems for bedtime stories, probably because they were brief, but I would pester him to read to me because I preferred his reading voice to my mother's. Now it seems what I excel in mostly as a writer is digression - tributaries branching from a stream of consciousness. I've written lyrics lately, but not a poem for a couple of years. I love hearing them read aloud, though - and read Prufrock aloud, or out loud, twice a year, usually alone -an odd regimen.
So far this poem has only been published in the print version of the paper "The Atlanta Story" - but not the website storygroup.com.
