I first heard abt this wonderful quirky poet years ago, rather tritely tho, in woody allen's "hannah n her sisters"...what struck me, apart from the sheer genius of his play with words...was his total disdain of punctuation and capitalization - something I have been wont to a bit since I started writing as an adult, in my personal space. I have to go get a copy of his best, when i can.

Digressing - I really like Sona Family's Glassy....catchy and fun...the female lead looks a bit like jennifer aniston...not that it matters, honestly.
