The Belz Toll
Poetry is alive in the American Heartland. Unfortunately, it's also broke.
St. Louis writer and poet, Aaron Belz, is the proverbial starving artist. He's a fellow Calvinist and personal friend of mine. His work is really good, and if you believe in supporting good art, then consider the matching funds program for Observable. How often is one dollar worth two?
At the very least, you should visit Aaron's website and check out his writing, and you too will become a fan. Because, let me tell you, I've been feeling like that guy in the photo; alone in a crowd, tired, and undone. But sometimes a good poem can give you hope. You know what I mean?
