i gave you a slim thin book

for a slim thin man
who writes slim thin poems
as he slips through time and towns
it was an Austin author(MARION WINIK)
she is valued in this town
it was to connect you to the Zeitgeist of our times-
so you might see and sing
what seems important to those beings
who visit Austin (or who stay to live
You see,as witnesses,we are participants-
Tourists,poets,temporary citizens
and we daub computer screens with virtual ink stories
of the passing of our days and nights
Others have before us/more will afterwards
while we are here(wherever we are
we use our senses to understand
what it is we are saying to each other
This is the WHY.You have the HOW
Your works will echo when you throw new water into the stone
and watch the stones dance on the waters
of Ladybird Lake
