Youse is the premier poet of the vernacular school. Haven't seen such a natural man poet since Robert Burns. Youse is genius writ large, Rich. Whitman would have loved your rhythms and your dialect. Keep it up. I finds myself tryin to emulate youse here and there,
watta ya know? youse gonna find your style writ all over my StatNisland epic youse just watch and see if it ain't so.
