Jim Spurr's poems are excellent, true to common life yet beautifully universal in eloquence. Please offer my compliments.

I've come by to pick up a link to your page.

Hey Clutch... So brother writes too. Cool. Now I can't say I understand it all, but it gives me a glimpse of someone, known or not known, real or surreal. It gives me a picture of a story. Any writer that can do that in a few short sentences has something to give. Very Good!

Joseph, He is a tremendous poet, but his reading would blow you away. He reads each year at the Arlo Guthrie festival in Oklahoma and has been backed up by David Anram on piano as he read. Jim Spurr was nominated two years ago for Poet Laureate of Oklahoma. Came in 2nd. He has been recorded for the Library of Congress reading B.H. Fairchild's poem Body and Soul. He is 72, an ex insurance adjuster and has Parkinsons. He reads at least once a week at Oklahoma venues within a hundred mile radius of his home. He is truly incredible. Email me your address and i will send you some of his published collections. My favorite is titled "It's Cool After 2:00 a.m. I am so glad you like his poetry. He is my brother-in-law, hubby's brother, but he aint heavy, he's my brother. I know we are blood related, perhaps in another life. He would LOVE you!!!! Your dialogue in the Virginia Woolf movie was incredible. Lana Nelson is going to make that movie for us. meanwhile, she is working on our second movie, the first was Running of the Bulls. I will send you a copy of that when you send me your address. I am her agent and entered it into Sundance, but were not accepted. her latest, due out in 4 weeks is a Spanish Novella. I play two roles, my first as a woman in prison and my second as a woman out of prison with a sex change operation trying to pass as Cezar Chavez!!! Everything we do is unscripted improv by The Hormones, a group of women friends who have been together through every hormonal change in life, from puberty to menopause. You will love the Running of the Bulls. It is clever, raunchy, and compelling. A short, about 35 minutes long.
