the writing surface I am using right now
is a first edition paperback
of The Roominghouse Madrigals;
if you want one now,
they go for about sixty dollars online,
when you can find one;
sad, maybe, that Buk did
in 24 short years, what
I haven't done in 39,
give fruit.
Although, I did just talk
to my oldest daughter,
who is both beautiful and brilliant,
heart and soul where they should be,
and she turned 22 about 22 minutes ago,
and she is an example
of my very best work;
so no sixty-buck books,
but still,

October 18, 2009, for Carinda Elizabeth Pursley.
