Brevity and language power are poet's tools Eighty uses to craft solid, influential text. He writes about education, food, poetry, cigars, drinks and football. He has adapted to the modern utilization of keywords, SEO and front-loaded writing. Building to a climax is no longer the game. A piece must start strong and grab interest or be ignored.
He writes for his wife and children, who are fascinating bilingual people.
