TENDER: for Paul Squires (in memorium)

“I miss you and I wanted to write / you a letter to tell you I miss you / but there is no silence / like hello unanswered”

Paul Squires from: “A Small Boy Holding Flowers


What is paid?
What is offered?
How is that spot
when pushed?
What are we looking after?

Mother, poet, american ex-pat from Texas living in Northern Italy.


  1. It’s a loss for all of the poets that ever had a comment from or an exchange with Paul. He was a very, very, fine writer who was never afraid to just play (and even if he was he did it anyway), and, that great rarity, an attentive and perceptive reader.
