letter from Paul, old friend 

when we were kids yes we played a lot

of monopoly but mostly I remember lying 

in a cot on the porch of your lake cottage 

telling ghost stories in the dark I'd never 

dreamed I could make up a gruesome tale 

as I went along, even less I'd like doing so 

you all opened up many new interests to me 

2022 Jacqueline Jackson
