Sonnet: Delete

    Dear Bob and Michael: although I'm pretty sure
    He had something going in the book
    He talked with you about and from which you saw
    A few lines and passages,

    I've decided to delete it from his memory.
    Please destroy any pages and/or references
    You may have saved. It makes me feel easier
    To know there won't be any fragements

    Stuck in somebody's computer.
    He had meant to spend at least another year
    Working on the contradictions,

    Punctuation, syntax, overall coherence
    And all that. Then he left it as it was. He'll be away
    For a while. There go the Trigons. Yrs, JM.
