numbers – I love them.  not adding them or balancing my checkbook or anything – just the solidness and trustworthiness of them.  the shape of them.  I think they can be the opposite of poems sometimes – so I wanted to incorporate them in some way.  I wrote the piece you used all at once, on a legal pad.

a candle.  smelling like gingerbread.  last night.
Where is your beach?
