A poet friend from Scotland tells another to
Meet me in Vermont when she arrives

In our town we live for months & months
Both unknown to one another

Then a poet from North Carolina
Visits to read in town

He is friendly and speaks of
Poets he knows hereabouts

My name comes up
He nods my way

Unknown to me the woman from
Scotland is in the audience

This is how we meet
