The Book of Years

Now Im moving to the Lost Coast, sharing my poetry is now more an act of self defense than anything else. Actually, I wrote it because a Japanese hostess asked me to help her get better at English. She highlighted the bits she liked in green and pink, and she put question marks around bits she didn't understand. So I added an appendix and footnotes for her. I did win some poetry prizes, but as she liked TS Eliot this doesn't contain any of my sonnets. Candidly, her markup was prettier than my poetry. I wasn't the only man who felt that way.
