The domain name is a reference/homage of sorts to the late poet Robert Creeley. One of his essays is titled Was That a Real Poem or Did You Just Make It up Yourself? I was sure that I'd heard him tell a story about someone asking this at his own reading; but having reread the essay he says it happened to another poet. Of course such slips and slides are the nature of storytelling or perhaps listening. Anecdotes fostered wonderful conversation for Creeley and often served as a placeholder for a larger idea. He told me many stories, and even lent me his dog Sophie, to help me tell one of my own.
