POEMS By Dan Sklar When I read through poetry magazines I come to dislike poetry unless it sounds like a real person talking rather than a person writing poetry which sounds too much like a poem instead of some piece of writing that takes me to a little beach in a town in New England in August where no one knows me or where a person looks at another person and loves that person. Dan Sklar teaches writing at Endicott College in Massachusetts. He rides a bicycle to work every day.
