Ted Greenwald’s poems sing the commons and dance with a homely grace American poetry has rarely seen.


 Ted’s Sublime Echos 
In the 1970s Ted and I would meet in the afternoons and talk til night. We even did a recording of a couple of dozen hours of our conversations. I owe a tremendous amount to those meetings and to our many conversations since. On this particular afternoon we talked at the bar in the back of the restaurant (I can’t remember the name of the place, but it was downtown).
