The Davis Enterprise
"Kenny,Thanks for letting me have these poems. I am a fan. It is good to read work that is sincere. There is an excess of gamesmanship in poetry, but I don't find any in the poems you've sent me. Cheers for it."
"It would be an honor to publish these poems and thanks again for
sending and resending and resending again. I'm a fan of your work. It
is good. It is compact. It is ironic, but not smart. It is playful,
but not fluffy. I like it."
Congratulations on your recording contract. Please let us know when your CD is released and where we can get a copy."
Hopefully you won't stop writing poetry even if you don't actively submit poems for publication. You've got a fresh, unique voice in your poems that I'm sure is what also makes you a good songwriter as well.
Best of luck to you in your new career.
