I see you drinking at a fountain with tiny


blue hands, no, your hands are not tiny


they are small, and the fountain is in France


where you wrote me that last letter and


I answered and never heard from you again.


you used to write insane poems about


ANGELS AND GOD, all in upper case, and you


knew famous artists and most of them


were your lovers, and I wrote back, it’ all right,


go ahead, enter their lives, I’ not jealous


because we’ never met. we got close once in


New Orleans, one half block, but never met, never


touched. so you went with the famous and wrote


about the famous, and, of course, what you found out


is that the famous are worried about


their fame –– not the beautiful young girl in bed


with them, who gives them that, and then awakens


in the morning to write upper case poems about


ANGELS AND GOD. we know God is dead, they’ told


us, but listening to you I wasn’ sure. maybe


it was the upper case. you were one of the


best female poets and I told the publishers,


editors, “ her, print her, she’ mad but she’


magic. there’ no lie in her fire.” I loved you


like a man loves a woman he never touches, only


writes to, keeps little photographs of. I would have


loved you more if I had sat in a small room rolling a


cigarette and listened to you piss in the bathroom,


but that didn’ happen. your letters got sadder.


your lovers betrayed you. kid, I wrote back, all


lovers betray. it didn’ help. you said


you had a crying bench and it was by a bridge and


the bridge was over a river and you sat on the crying


bench every night and wept for the lovers who had


hurt and forgotten you. I wrote back but never


heard again. a friend wrote me of your suicide


3 or 4 months after it happened. if I had met you


I would probably have been unfair to you or you


to me. it was best like this.
