walking this morning around the block
look UP!@Mother Muse Moon(still drunk!
she had attracted a large planet 
that was beaming and flirting in relationship
between the gravity of the situation.
and the free form relationship of open spaces
Logically,i know we are all in relationship
that moon and stars are walking distances around my block
that i could just reach up and pluck 
an apple moon from this morning tree
I called that bright planet DEB AKERS
knowing that is where she would want to be

You who wrote to her 
sent cards and letters to her
reminded her that she who loved so well and smilingly
was beloved privately.Well,she 
had your cards and letters in  a box
in front of her sitting chair when she could not move
and she would read and re-read your love
and look at photographs and art you sent
and know you close as friends
On her shelf,to her left,so ponderous with books
copies of RED SHOES published by Elzy
She held these precious as your art
reminded her she was a part 
of all your works and play
You gave her smiles on her way.
