Back working in the Emory Lee papers--racing the clock till library closing time. But here's today's selection, from Lawson Fusao Inada's "On These Terms," in the August 1973 issue of Bridge magazine:

No. We will continue
on these terms, in the passes,
among the usual ruins, anonymous
and in agreement as always,
causing you to call home

to delirious people who might be
dancing and chanting in a vocabulary
you cannot call your own.
