Poet's Notes about The Poem

postscript
he wrote the whole novel in his
head,
sentence by sentence.it took
him all day
then he took out a
wide-ruled yellow legal pad
with three pink vertical
lines marking the left margin,
and from his breast
pocket he extracted
a plastic fountain pen,
and near the top of the
page he wrote the word ode

in black ink, all caps.for
a few minutes he did
'it was the greatest
birthday present he had
ever received:

the manual
smith-corona
typewriter

his parents gave him on
the day he graduated
from high school

after they took him to the
statler hilton for lunch,

where they had cold
poached salmon, his
father's favorite.'
