Gee, I sure used a lot of cliches about writing. But I guess that’s why they’re cliches because most cliches are true. If you’re interested in more of Bob’s work, you can find a copy of his chapbook “Swallowing Our Love for Everything”, collected and printed by Michael Grover at Covert Press: http://www.covertpress.com/phillips.html An older collection called “I’m not Your Sweet Babboo” is available from The University of Toledo Press: http://www.utoledopress. com/poets_center.html You can find work by other Toledo poets there too, all of it very fine, all of it rewarding. Bob’s Bio: I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. Grew up near Delaware and Detroit Ave., and also in the Eleanor and Lewis Ave. area. Graduated from Woodward high school, spent two years in the Navy against my will. Have had many types of jobs, mostly entry-level and low-paying. I’ve basically lived a bohemian life-style which includes both a voluntary and not-so-voluntary vow of poverty.
