Malcolm Miller (1930-2014), reclusive poet of Salem, Massachusetts and Montreal, published dozens of books of poetry during his lifetime. Many of these were cheap, self-published books; a few were published by main-stream presses. Seldom holding a job, sometimes homeless, the constant in Miller's life was poetry. Rod Kessler, who wrote the introduction for this volume of Miller's Selected Poems, was among the advocates for Miller and his poetry. He and other admirers sifted through over 3,000 of Miller's poems to select the ones included in What I Am Always Waiting For.
