Cradle Catholic, lapsed & relapsed. Came late to conservatism:

Old English major who maintains an interest in poetry, and is dismayed by the lock-step leftist unanimity of "the poetry community." Nevertheless, as Milosz says:

Is fought in prose. It was not always so.
And our regret has remained unconfessed.
Novels and essays serve but will not last.
One clear stanza can take more weight
Than a whole wagon of elaborate prose.
