Kari 說Galway Kinell 的生日会裡
“替我找一个叫 Cornelius Eady的人,告訴他我想他 !”
“哈哈, 他正在看你的短訊 !"
Looking for Someone
He has a smile bigger than ever.
At Galway Kinell’s birthday party
Kari said there is a handsome man with a halo
Catches her eyes
Who is he ?
She is going over
While a SMS comes unexpectedly,
“Please find someone called Cornelius Eady for me
and tell him I miss him.”
“Ha, ha…how do you know this is the one I am looking for ?”
Over the phone both of us ask.
“He says hi !”
“I say I miss him.”
“Ha, ha...he is reading your SMS !”
He said he has recovered and life is not the same,
He said he will live a better life,
He said he treasures everyone,
He still baby sits my poems
And tells me my language is fine
And wakes up the dead fish in me.
Together at the Poetry Center
I did not see things in front of my eyes
of him and what he did
care, encouragement, and
departure without turning my head,
And coming back upon a request,
And he is still as sweet as forever.
Who am I ?
A language worker not knowing how to write
except him saying “You can”
Better late than never
To tell someone how he is missed
via this person that person
including his wife Sarah
Tonight, I must give him a call.
