Poetry and stuff
My full name is Gerald Friedman, and that's what I've mostly used for poetry and physics.

Yes, I took about 20 years off from submitting poetry to magazines.

"Woods Outside Cleveland, Ohio"
Bluepepper Review, May 9, 2021
I was confused about Native peoples when I wrote this one. The Assistaeronon lived near the western end of Lake Erie. The people who lived near what is now Cleveland until about 1640 are known only from archeology; their artifacts are called the Whittlesey tradition after the first archeologist to find them. For now change "the Assistaeronon, the Fire Nation" to "the 'Whittlesey' people".
