for Iz who was my poetry man from the start. A PhD on an obscure female poet of the 1800s for Goodness’ sake. Mother of Henry Kendall and the path we were following indicated that Melinda and her girls may well have been the true poets behind the acceptable male frontperson of Henry. I don’t even know how to access most of his research behind the his passwords. All the unfinished work we had lined up. Now, it looks like struggle again . I have Dad’s projects and Izzy’s and mine – with both Poetry Men gone. Too harsh – I am not made of the stuff that is needed now.
