where the writers are
Years, months, and a day
Paul and Ben - 1977

Joplin, Hendrix


and Morrison all

died
 at 28 in 1971


the year of your birth.

 

Only one more day and


it will be ten years


since we found you,


3 months shy of 28

 

that day when


we knew we would never


hug you, kiss you


or have to worry about you


ever again.

So sad. I had bad drams

So sad. I had bad drams about my 26-year-old last night, the feeling here resonates.

Thank you for sharing this.

So sad

I'm sorry about your bad dreams. I hope my poems to make you feel worse. What started out as a fun Twitter exercise turned into a meaningful poem.

Best, M.

PS. When is your next Novel course starting?

Hi, Madeline! No, your poem

Hi, Madeline!

No, your poem just reminded me I am not a mother alone in the thoughts about children, here or not here, here or not close by.

I would love to have you in another class.  Novel 2 (perfect for you) starts in September!

Hope the writing is going well.

Best,

J
