Joe's out there on the edge of northern California. I came through the town where he is fifteen years ago after driving and hiking through redwoods the day before. With a little boy you drive a little, you hike a little. Two weeks ago Joe sent this sheaf of new poems by electric mail. I read and wrote back with a "Let's do it." We designed and printed and folded and wrapped all the next few days of rain. Good old rain.
