l’envoi: poem for carol 

our loved friend carol manley
two days before her sudden death
emailed me about the poems in
illinois times she wrote do you
need material maybe you can
do something with this from zay:
“the girls were chasing the boys
they wanted to put makeup on us
but our feet sang a song the boys’
feet sang a fast song the girls’
feet sang a slow song so they
didn’t catch us!” carol carol we
ache at our loss and little xavier’s
loss he growing up now without
a grandma to keep his feet singing
we without you to save his songs
without you to save the treasure
of your own songs not yet written
