Snail Mail

I had a letter from William Carlos Williams yesterday. Among the accumulated post was an envelope from Yale. In it, along with a covering note from Eric White, were xeroxes of a letter I wrote to Williams in January 1961, his reply, and his envelope. He’d forgotten to put on my street address and the letter had been returned, to end up in his archive. Strange to look at myself at 22, and to read a message that has taken 47 years to reach me; thanks to Eric’s research.
