John Collins (Art MFA 72)

John Collins (Art MFA 72) writes, “From one of my poems: ‘Temperance Union Temperance Union please take my leave from meetings steeped in pain, the members left some time ago. The roar of crowds and hands that clasped are all that now remain, and that I will forgo as though I could retrieve the words all said in vain.’”
