  1. I am writing a book on construction litigation for the American Bar Association, May I use the following quote from your blog?

    Maple syrup is in fact one of my favorite metaphors for poetry. Think about it: To make a quart of maple syrup one must first collect gallons of clear, tasteless sap. By boiling this bland liquid — and boiling it some more, one is left with the dark, sweet and sticky essence: The syrup. Or, as the case may be: The poem.
    –—from https://dontcallitpoetry.wordpress.com

    I use the quote to analogize the weighing of construciton contract documents to the boiling down process for maple syrup.
