I'm auctioning a poem-readiing-and-feedback correspondence on eBay.
As of this writing, the value is cash American is six hundredths of a dollar.
But I know from recent exchanges with a talented but relatively new poet
that being earnestly read and commented on is a considerable heart value.
This experiment is also one of marketing: how do I make the eBay listing
more alluring and more expressive of the intangible value it represents?
Can I begin to accumulate testimonials over time? The truth is, I do
this sort of thing for free when I'm in the mood. I think it will be
a good learning. And perhaps I will ask permission to post poems
and my feedback and correspondence here. But it will be the poet's perogative.
