Sorry for the scribbling!

June 14, 1984

Dear Don,

Enclosed, a revision of the last poem I sent.
Please let me know if you doubt anything.
Otherwise, it’s Joey’s. Thanks very much for
all your help, as usual. As usual, you were right!

I’ve also enclosed a copy of “The Shooting.”
I’d like you to send both to The Atlantic
now, forgetting The New Yorker, if that seems OK.
Only, though, if “Seeing Cooch” seems OK.
How odd to think it two unrelated Communist
McNairs in this area at roughly the same
time! Thank you for the sleuthing!



P.S. Went to lunch with Mike Pride yesterday-
I paid in his honor. He sure is excited about that
Nieman! And I am excited for him. One of the great
benefits of that interview was I got to know him!
