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?

  1. I don’t know of Paul Squires–I am glad to now know something……………

  2. I am so sorry Bonnie. Tender is the word.

  3. 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.
