…a street cop gone poet or maybe poet gone street cop…(only you can decide).

Most poets have day jobs. No one expects a poet to feed the fam-ily on verse (physically anyway). People are quick to inquire as to a poet’s “real job.” Still, most poets respond with reluctance as though it taints the body of work to be a working stiff, or worse, that a true artist needs to give up the security of a conventional career. What some inquisitors (and poets) miss, is that a unique position in society may enhance rather that detract from the truth, beauty and outright funkiness of the creative product.
