dear kelli

per your suggestion, i have not gone gentle into that goodnight.

thank you for that.

i wonder (only now, how odd) what you'd have sensed or seen in me to offer that suggestion.

do you remember that late afternoon at the sawdust festival?

you held my hand under the table (at which your mother and father also sat).

that would have been the last time you saw me.

i saw you for the last time at your wedding, later.

sorry i skipped the reception.

i remember it rained that day.

i also remember seeing you on roller skates, twice.

i bet you can't recall which of those occassions you were NOT working.
