    In Two Seconds, poem by Mark Doty published in Buffalo N.Y. Sunday morning newspaper.
    This comes to thank Mr. Doty for this most moving poem. He has said what needed to be said. Said it
    beautifully, profoundly. Taught us.

    I am looking forward to reading Mark Doty's new book, 'Paragon Park.' I also just bought Paul Lisecky's book, 'The Burning House.'
    These two, I feel, are remarkable talents.
