I've always loved Doty's attention to death, to beauty, and to the larger things in life. He writes straight, never stern, never judgementally. We don't choose to be poets - it chooses us. It certainly chose Mark Doty. He came up to me I don't know why at one of his readings at Portland State University, as if he knew something. That I might be a listener and watcher that would one day write a poetry book. He knew! Just finished _Enduring Friendships_ (dead and alive) and I thank you now, Mark Doty. He has a sixth sense when he writes.
