    Frederick Douglass

    I've been writing for 30 years. Every craft takes awhile to perfect. Haiku is no different. I've tried to learn the craft. The poem itself is not important. Learning the craft is what is important -- and I know how to write.

    Me and Shirley write four or five good ones a year. By myself, I would write one. We probably write one hundred versions of those four or five. By myself I needed a hundred to come up with one.

    So you can see how much more efficient I've become.
