"I wrote this poem - Bill Kloefkorn, the state poet was on his way out to Grand Island [Nebraska] one time for a writing engagement out there. And I was sort of resentful that I hadn't been invited. I thought I'd go home and write a real snotty poem about Nebraska, and have Bill read it out there in my absence. And I got home and started to work on the poem, and as the poem developed, I began to understand how much I really loved the state. This is that poem: So This Is Nebraska."
