That's fine, Allen, because I make most of my money on the interest, anyway. The poetry is just a way to open the door. It's the standard 5% per week on the unpaid balance for the first week, and increases 1% per week after that. And since my collection guy, Big Jimmy "Three Fingers" The Classicist (I don't want to have to tell you how he got that nickname - it would be too painful), also lives in Brooklyn, I don't even have to pay him travel money.

At last things have slowed to a walking pace, and today I found time to open Michael's package and leaf into Furusato. Which means I will very soon surprise him with the check in the mail for his book, snugly wrapped inside a classics meeting handout of mine oozing with fresh processed wabi-sabi nut butter.

It's an attractive book, with many poems I have only flipped among. I just stopped on "Trochees Are the Perfect Fix" (p.79), whose seventh and eighth lines are "Trochees are the poet's perfect fix -- stone / Fences that provide a perfect high," and ends with "a touch of frost." Landscape, weather, puns, and certain ilk turn up there too.

PS: It's Michael's book, not mine. Iona copy now though.
