    I am really enjoying your work...The line- one voice, indistinguishable, under God....Perhaps your greatest talent is being able to blend the horrific and the comic.

Best Poem of Daniel Nester

Late Anniversary Madrigal

May you find help from action figures I keep.
May you find them in the top drawer
And bring them out while you sleep
And I welcome darkness--
The flickering TV, helicopters
hopscotched overhead.

May these nightdolls help you,
When every questionnaire questions you,
When diagonal smoke
Mafficks treetops.
Use this antidote liberally.
May your walk to the F train be not alone.
