Letter from Paul

Paul wrote me.
He is fine, he says,
living with monks somewhere,
I don’t know where exactly.
The post mark is Hong Kong, but
that can’t be right.
He says he is in the mountains.
And without Ruth bugging him,
he is getting clear about life.
Well, I thought, after reading his letter,
I hope he is well after everything that happened.
And I hope Ruth is OK too.
And I hope the bank had a good insurance policy.
And I hope the insurance company had a good re-insurance policy.
I wish everyone well tonight.
