Dating Steve

and there is

in his eyes

some old truth

like whales know

and would share

if the risk

of spears were

not part of

what they'd learned

Liz Matt

Liz Matt, 60, of Cinnamonson writes that she's "the last person anyone expects to be a poet." Under the name Lizabeth Starr, she hosted AM/Philadelphia at 6ABC from 1984 to 1995, and now works in public relations in Old City. She says her "life changed" at 35, when she attended a poetry reading at Moonstone Arts Center. "Dating Steve" is about a man she'd met in a Paris cafe. Liz Matt and Steve Mushinski have been married now for 23 years, and their only child is about to graduate from college in New York City.
