“A Poet Travels the World Wide Web” I wrote in 2004 during my recovery from a back injury that left me housebound. Iíd moved in with a friend who had a computer at home, and this was my first major introduction to the Internet. Of course, I headed straight for the porn. And while much of it was dreary and soulless, still I came across some gems: personal photographs and captions that were just plain charming or that quickened my pulse with their combination of eros and art.

“Oh brave new world, that hath such people in it!” So spoke Miranda in The Tempestóand I agree.
