Got Your Note

found it in the refuse bin
out by the dim-bulbed garage.

found it like a surgeon
finds a cancer, blooming
under the skin.

looked up to the moon,
its dark side all aflame,
curse words stamped white.

sent it to momma
who cried, your words
all disconnected.

found time to listen,
recorded your voice
while you drove away.

felt some emotion,
a gargle, a swish
of mouthwash.

spit it out,
but it grew back,
silver vines spinning
black lies.

This is indeed a powerful write. From a personal perspective, as I have recieved such letters, and from the way you have of making the reader see what you want them to see.

A powerful articulation of the almost inexpressible confusion and "choking" sensations which contort both heart and mind at such times. Your choice of images is always uniquely startling but always "spot-on", and, once you have said it, seems such a "natural" and effortless metaphor. You are somehow master of these relational knife-edge writes. You always manage to make the real and surreal blend seamlessly - and always with vim and colour. Could feel every "non-registering" moment of this: quite breathtaking, thank you, Larry. Kate xx

This sounds like a note that a certain friend of mine wife wrote. She is not much either.
