Dear Wes,

Terrific about the call from Peter Davison. That
is remarkable. Excellent.

I won’t send you the New Yorker poem – I think
you saw an earlier version of it long ago, about walking
on the railroad tracks – but how about this one?

Love to you,


Editorial note about this letter: “This one” turned out to be “The Day I was Older,” together with three other poems in progress.
