Greg L. Flegel is a native Milwaukeean. Learned about poetry at Ripon College from David Graham. My heroes are Gwendolyn Brooks, Dylan Thomas, Robert Browning, William Carlos Williams, Langston Hughes, Lucille Clifton and Billy Collins. Fascinated by structures, classics, and collision of the arts. Writing is as much entertainment as it is therapy. I hope these poems surprise you as much as they did me.
