      Passionate and lyric and imaginative and I love that he spent time in prison and found God there although his writing never never becomes preachy or even evangelical In fact, he was raised in the Catholic church and is critical of much that he learned there Hopeful and intensely painful at the same time which is perhaps the only honest way to come to hope.
