Six months from the first day we met
The girl with the cast iron smile
Who’d been the other side of nothing
With invisible roommates
Was suddenly in love…
As though light interrupted
Delia became slender half of
Mr and Mrs Deadtree.
My hollow entreaty…that she
Reconsider wisdom of this…
Met with response as if
To a distant hum.
And now we’re celebrating mutual
Success…I’ve published her NY Times
Best seller, Dark Days: Biography of
A Self-Professed Cynic.
