Dear V______,

I hope you’re doing okay. Write if you feel like it.

I just wrote you a poem about a picture I just took for you.

It all happened very quickly.

Here’s the silly poem:

Amaryllis Finis

And here’s the picture that inspired the poem, exactly what my eyes, with a slight upward glance, would look upon this very moment as I write this:

(Please don't let FartMan see a copy of my stupid poem. Even though it's only two lines, he would tear it into a thousand pieces.)
Thinking of you!
