    To the writer: Liked your poem 'I Know...'. Feel, however, that poem might better conclude with second last stanza, which I find both witty and truthful. Present conclusion seems to add nothing the poem might do very well without.

    I like your poems Don. It's encouraging to find a poet of your calibre on these pages.

In The Weeds (For M)

I am an untended corner of the garden.
My regard is for the rocks tossed my way.
My anger is my sunlight. Silent evenings
are my rain.

I am left with a packed suitcase.
I am puzzled by my own reflection.
Days are spent making arrangements
to do what I would rather not;
