Ahoofe’s Poetry

Acknowledgments 

I am grateful to the following friends, colleagues and relatives who have made my working life and private existence quite worthwhile: Ralph and Linda Nazareth, Bruce Urquhart, Bernadine Brown, Marian Parish, Roberta Kramer, Sharon Leder, Michael Anzelone, Norman Spencer, Frances O’Connor, Harold Bellinger, Calvin Andrew, Kenneth Saunders, Alan Baxter, Abu S. and Naana Q. Abarry, Sammy Browne, Charles Owusu, Atta-Poku Agyemang, Godfried Asante, Kwadwo and Diana Owusu-Poku, Augusta Sampong and David Arkorful, Martin and Hilda Okwaning-Aboagye and Mike Altman, my Publishing Services Associate (PSA) at iUniverse, Inc., among a host of others.
