On My Brother’s First Published Book
I especially loved Part Three.
Your typical humor.
The reservoir in Avon, Connecticut? [Yes]
TEARING OUT THE BLUE GIRLS
I’ve already written about mine,
As you know.
TEACHING BY EXAMPLE
My heart stopped.
EXCUSE ME, MAY I HAVE A WORD?
A poem straight out of Boston in the naughts.
Tears backed up in my eyes.
BENEATH OUR NOTICE
Pure Annie Dillard.
I felt, at the last word, as if I was falling into a crevasse.
Still more tears.
The ‘neighbor’ I brought in for Mother
Was a rabbi.
I was humorously insulted:
She spoke to him,
But not to me.
