Paul was asked to write a poem in February 2014 by New York Poet, George Wallace who edits a poetry column called "Walt's Corner" published in a weekly newspaper in Whitman's home town of Huntington Long Island, called 'The Long Islander'. The paper was founded by Walt Whitman back in 1838, so there's quite a bit of history to it.
Paul wrote a poem especially for this publication call "A good life?" which George accepted and which appeared in the paper.

 George is a noted New York poet and is currently poet in residence at the Walt Whitman Birthplace which is a New York State historic site.
