EmilyI visited our home in Carmel.
Do you remember when you said
Half the rooms should be painted
In the spirit of a looming watermelon?
It rained abundantly for one hour
Each time we said hello.
Was it a bone you found in your dumpling?
I remember a conversation about a bird
And the nests it would build
Had it not been partially dead. Nonetheless
I am making progress. Each day
Tensions lead me around
For hours on the landing
And nothing interrupts my flow.
I heard about your sister. I am sorry.
The paper said she had been treated
I know what that means to you.
I have been reading all our letters.
