    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.

Dismissal

A child is not picked up after practice.
School is over. Nothing left but the
late afternoon, ungraded activities....
soccer, band, chess club. No more
expectations. Hangers-on have nothing to gain.
If you are not alone, its a fine time to talk.
Hallways are empty, dusty and echoing. A
locker around the corner bangs shut. A whistle
blows in the gym. The band butchers a door-muted
