OK, so

Madeline encased in background, painting by William Eaton, Aug 2018 - 2for A.H.

OK, so I didn’t include you in an e-mail,

OK, so this fact got lodged in the back of my mind,

OK, so in sleep some of that back stuff comes to the front,

OK, so, your mouth, round and open, we began to kiss,

OK, so, can you think of some way we could go back to sleep?


— Poem and gouache by William Eaton


Happy Holidays to all!

  1. This is a perfect poem for our times and for this time of year. We need to forgive everyone who has troubled us or ignored us and find our way back to happiness. Happy holidays, my friend! I love your poem!
