From April 2003. In a penpal-ish exchange with a friend, I produced a whole slew of effervescently whimsic pieces that are still fun to read 15 years later.

Tardy reveille

On a Saturday. 
Rain in the big bean. 
April's endless pour. 
Coffee's second mug. 
Sommeil évanoui. 
Sit we, do not stride. 
Vigil Mass at four. 
Several hours away. 
Wood and dust and books. 
Bending low, desk-lamp. 
Icon smiles upon 
Our inchoate words. 

Greetings to moptop!
