Later revised to “Higginson Matters in Magnificent Culture of Myopia” because Thomas Robert Higginson Matters much More to me and always will.
here’sThis poem as published in the Fiddlehead of Canada’
“Higginson Matters in Magnifcent Cultture of Myopia” being performed
This boyfriend and I happily divorced., and now I have someone much, much better, someone I really Love, Thomas Robert Higginson Our “Usness” in Chicago (where I fell in Love with him)
as seen here, the unbounding love: Me and my Thing always. I Fell in Real Love with him in Chcago where anything is possible Thingdom and Usness
(and can he ever Kiss! I was so transformed I wrote a whole book about it: New Kiss Horizon)
Also my son Ansted reading his poem, “Katydids Cross the Sky” written when he was 8; he is now 26:
And I now have “Real Love”:
I am very thankful for this Remarkable Love. I have been blessed every moment that he has been in my life. I could not be more blessed than to have his love. Ever. I probably had the best divorce Ever! Ever!
Until him, I had no idea what Love really is and Can be.
