Dear Henry,
Yes, that's me --
on the outside.

Inside, I'm still the girl
who could out-race and out-spell you
with one arm tied

behind my back!
Keep sending your poems about the homeplace.
They're what's keeping the true me alive.

  1. That outfit. For tennis. That's quite remarkable, and worthy of respect. Fitting, for your poem.
