I don't know in whose illustrious company I am, yet, but I know many fine poets in Ohio have been writing poems for much longer than me. I am honored to be in your community, and I thank you for what you've taught me.
Not that I want this to sound like an acceptance speech, but I do want to thank my friends and family for being so supportive. No one has ever said to me, "You want to... what?" I love you guys.
