May 4, 2010Dear Allie,So… I’ve been missing you a great amount lately. I probably will alwayswill be missing you. But sometimes I’m glad you’re not here, in a world full ofphonies and all. Every now and then I read some poems. You would’ve likedthem. We probably would’ve written a lot of them on your baseball glove. Youwould’ve had something new to read at a baseball game. I’m using “would’ve” alot. It kind of depresses me. So anyways I found a poem you especially would’veliked. There it is again… “would’ve”. The poem is called Homework. It’s by someguy named Allen Ginsberg. He’s probably surrounded by phonies just like we arebrother.What I like about this poem is there is no hidden meaning. There are nodifferent interpretations of it. It says what it says. And what it says is that thisworld is in need of cleaning up. It talks about a lot of the countries in the worldand how we should all stick them in our laundry. “Scrub up Africa, put all the birdsand elephants back in the jungle.”, this is something we would do if we could, I’msure of it. We would also wash the Amazon river, dump in the U.S, and wring outall the mess out of Russia and China, just like it says in the poem.You know how the Carib and Gulf of Mexico have oil in their oceans? Wewould clean that out too. Try this for size, “Rub that smog off the North Pole, wipeup all the pipelines in Alaska, Rub a dub dub for Rocky Flats and Los Alamos,Flush that sparkly Cesium out of Love Canal”. I’m pretty sure you’d like thispoem. I think I’ll write in your glove for you. In the same green pen. Even though itdepresses me a little. I’ll look for more poems AllieLove you, Miss you,
