I guess I hope…some of my input is useful…to your
effort [breath]

Dear Voices with Words in Them,

I keep trying to find the voice that wrote this…
this thing I hear or read (in which case, the voice
is my head, or is in it).  (Or) Is it in the kitchen,

cranky and cooking?  One can never be too sure.
I mean nothing by any of this except let’s do lunch
sometime.  I miss you and am hoping I’ll see you soon!

I guess,
I. Hope
