Dear Larry,
I wanted you to have the first copy of this book because (Turn 2 pages, please) …
You know WHAT WORK IS, & no one has helped me as much as you with my work while I did this book.
So in a way (turn two pages, please) …
This book is yours & for you,
FOR LARRY LEVIS,
& this is a token of how much thanks I feel, my brother & friend in this crazy enterprise we call poetry or life.
Love,
