Poet’s Note in Volume 1
Nicky Selditz, at 65, has been writing poetry for almost 40 years. He says, “My vision is metaphysical and lyrical. I mostly write in a surreal and symbolic stream-of-consciousness fashion. I rewrite and rewrite my writing until I’m satisfied the poem is finished.” He has had poems published in Urthkin, Wild Turkey, and Sic, Vice and Verse. He lives in Encino, California.
