Larry Schug's poetry is conversational. He likes the reader to picture themselves sitting across the kitchen table, talking over a cup of tea or coffee. Poetry is an art form, like all others, which is essentially communication between one human being and another. Larry's poetry is an art, which he hopes inspires or causes readers to perhaps think in new ways or feel some sort of emotion.
