    Thank you. I like what I have read.
    Am not so close to being dead
    As a non 85 to fill a form
    And look to read you yet again.
    So, thank you.

Do Not Disturb

The discretionary sign
hung from the doorknob
of the door to the room
in dallas in a holiday inn
untouched by your hand
for three long dog days
it waved to the house-
keepers like a wind sock
