POSTCARDS FROM HERE AND THERE

Conchitina Cruz

*

Salutation. Alternate caption for image. Doodle + overexplanation. Rundown of schedule, token promise, hyperbolic expression of love. Yours,

*

Salutation. Description of cloud cover, choice beverage, current cast of strangers. Reference to season, clunky display of newly acquired vocabulary. Unreasonable query, half-hearted joke. Yours,

*

Salutation. Location and historical fact overheard at the station. Gratitude for phone call. Reiteration of gratitude. Comment on noise, comparison to random locations. Rejection of comments made thus far. Annoyance. Apology. Yours,

*

Salutation. Happiness over recent purchase. Slight nostalgia and paranoia. Recollection of code invented in grade school. Name in code. Name in code. Yours,

*

Salutation. Quote lifted from exhibit notes. Emphasis on repeatable, reportable, impoverished, impartial. Deletion of im, note on nested words, imp, impart. Yours,

*
