  1. Yesterday i heard your poetry on WFIU and loved the birthday poem about marigolds. Where can I find it? i’m in Bloomington.


  2. HI Patrick. Did you write the 2 great poems in Columbia Poetry Review, “poem in which i’m butch as fuck” and “harvest”? If so, great poems I’ll be sharing in future workshops I teach, and with friends tonight.


  3. Patrick,
    I just read your story, “Doghearted,” in Vestal Review and wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it, was touched by it, and how that ending ultimately kicked me in the gut … so beautiful.
    I’m a Hoosier, with IU degrees (though from far-flung campuses, LOL).
    Anyway, I look forward to reading more of your work.
    DS Levy
