Emails From My Mother II

Sometimes I think that if I rearranged the formatting of some of my mom’s emails, I could create poetry:

Vacation

It is very warm…
Outside there is a nice breeze.
You should see the Mayan calendar cement walkway
Gass and his brother made.
Later they will add color.
(I think they shouldn’t color it because
the color will come off
anyway.)
I’ll try to send pictures.
It took a while because we stopped for lunch
and the grocery store…
When we got to the house, I had to get stuff
out of my suitcase,
went to look at the boathouse,
take pictures…
and I just gave them the name Glyphs.
I was showing him the online book I printed out
on Writing Mayan Glyphs.
We were talking
and now
I’m eating some pasta salad.

Emails From My Mother

Sometimes I think that if I rearranged the formatting of some of my mom’s emails, I could create poetry:

The place looks great.
They bought it for 24,000
in April
and put it up for sale
for $68,500
in July.
They just lowered the price
a little.
It is weird,
because on the same page
there was a picture
on the right side of the screen
and it was 1335 Good St.
[the house we lived in when you were born]
It is up for sale.
I’m making lentil soup.
