    Harriet McDougal Rigney

    Dear Jason, something to post, to celebrate the season—and Jim's WONDERFUL news. Love to you all, Harriet

    A Genuine Wham-O

    Lists for cards, lists for cookies,
    lists for books and scarves and games
    and candles. Maybe
    a bell would fit in there.
    Maybe I'll give it up and be a witch.

    My ersatz Frisbee—
    cards and scarves—
    are packed with love,
    but never seem to hit the mark,
    the tender lips, the gleaming fangs
    of those I throw them to.
    I'll borrow a young terrier bitch
    and lob a real one for her.

    Frisbees of love? We live in one:
    the Milky Way. Or are you going
    to fob me off with dusty physics,
    lumps of coal and willow switches?
    Please! The world sends me huge bright disks
    of love and light.
    Although it's hard to see them, hidden as they are
    in books and scarves and games
    and candles. And a bell.

    —Harriet Popham Rigney
