Spoil includes most of my older poems that I can still stand to look at. The dates of the posts do not represent the actual dates of composition, which in a few cases go back to the mid-80s. I regard most of the poems in here as juvenilia, but I’m still fond of them. They are the spoils of my misspent youth. I’d like to think they’re still fresh.
