Patricia Valdata - Elkton, MD (USA):
April 04, 2001:
This is the book my mother read to me as she lay
on the green couch in the small two-family house on Ball Street.
Imagine: The day your first novel is published, but your dog is
so sick you don't care anymore.
The dog gets well, and you are an author at last, signing
copies of your first book for your best friend, who came to
the book signing with you; the stranger who approaches the table where
you sit, pen ready, asks where the restroom is.
This book taught you the word 'phony'.
She flipped the pages of the textbook as you argued with your
English teacher that a poem should not mean but be.
