A Poem for Toluca
OK, here's a link that's on the way out, but before it goes, thought I'd share it here. It was brought to mind when Joan, this afternoon, put up a lovely gallery of Toluca photos on Facebook.
It's a poem that appears in my Hey, Crumbling Balcony! Poems New & Selected. I wrote it for my friend Joan's cat Toluca, who met an early end in 2003. I met Joan — at least virtually — through the Randy Newman listserv, where I've made a lot of neat friends, a few of whom I've even met.
Over and out.
