iPoet received this email Feb 3, 2000
my name is Ryan Keith. i am an 18 year old poet hailing originally from Rochester NH. i moved to New York
City in September for college, and subsequently dropped out 2 months later, because i realized i would rather
live my life a little more freely, rather then subject myself to the institution of a fixed education. i am about to
embark on a open ended road trip across these "great" states with only my car, my guitar, some cigarettes, and
lots of pens and paper. i dont know where i am going, and i dont know where i'll end up. i guess you could say i
am young, drifting vagabond with a weatherd soul, and a broken heart.
to which iPoet responded:
Hey Ryan, I liked your poem a lot. I'd like to excerpt it and make a page
for you at iPoet. If you could mail a little photo, or drawing
of yourself would be great... everyone
wants to see what you look like. Where are you headed? ...
ryan flashed us back:
hello there, i thank you very much for your response to my poem, and i would behonored to have it posted on your site. i think what you all are
doing with iPoet is incredible. true drifting poets like myself are
in need for something like this, so that we know we are not alone,
i am heading out of new hampshire next week, and from there--the road
is pretty open-ended. i wanted to end up in california, but i think
i am gonna travel as far as my car wants to go. (i have a beat up 89
my plan is to meet some amazing new people, learn from the
actualizations of the road, and hopefully find a little amazing grace
to call my own.
i am sorry, but i dont have a picture online. altho, i can get one
scanned, and sent to you if you would like.
again, a thousand thank you's, and may you be well and happy.
