February 7, 1946 Dear Don, It was good to hear from you. You seem to supply the action of our drama, while we here are merely a background. However we have our aches also, if they are a little less basic than yours. To your Poetry: You are writing euphoniously (except your attraction to “excrement” and your new idiom which seems pointless, showyily4 empty and empty of good show) — your images flow very rapidly bearing your thought, instead of the usual — thought bearing them. Sometimes they are contradictory such as “Raised up antlers of its scent / smelling us like birddogs out, and smoking us from holes” — this is awkward.

I won’t enclose the lines, but hope I can show you a finished version soon. What about Jo? Where is she? And when do you think it would be possible for you all to get married? Be sure to let us know. And send her our regards, or something like that. If she’s in Orlando now, and plans to come to Miami for anything, tell her to come by to see us, please. Thanks for offering to get the Fugitive poetry, but Jean and I have placed an order for about two dozen books with a local bookstore that handles the longhair trade around here, and their poetry is included.

And lovely people perhaps around me. We expect to have an apartment with records and books and pictures and people and warmth and whatever else good things there are necessary, and I will send you my address. Because I would like you to visit me when you can. It seems I cannot get started on the same novel again or on another nobler one. The other, as I think I wrote you, turned out to be nothing but corny and immature. A great disappointment to me. The poems I have written seem to mount up slowly; soon they may grow into a book.
