Spoken Word: Don't Take It Personally

This poem was inspired by an email I received a few years ago in which the sender proceeded to include a detailed list of what they perceived to be my many and varied flaws (and I'm not going to say that this individual was totally wrong - they were rather pinpoint accurate on a few). At the end of this rather long, and quite personal, email, they chose to close with the words, "I hope you don't take this personally..."

Out of this a poem was born.

Thank you to Daniel Merrill for the recording and mastering. And to all my fellow SASFA15 shipmates who attended the coffeehouse at which it was first publicly presented.
