Ridl's Last Class?!?!

Hey Kids, The word from Jack is that his last class is this spring. I didn't ask him about the details but he did say, "Yeah, we should have a huge DPS reunion and drink to the Cap'n!!!!!"

So I think its up to us to get something organized for the spring and have a little reunion. Maybe we could organize a reading at one of the theatres and invite Jack's friends and family. (Then get thrown out of a bar for reading poetry.)

I don't have a lot of time, but I wanted to bounce some ideas of DPS. This way we can come up with something to do for him together. If we could get some comments going on this it would be really helpful.

I called Myra and left a message this afternoon to see if the department was planning anything. I will let you know as soon as I hear back-

everyone is broken

The walls shiver and shake
each time the lovers downstairs
slam doors
to hearts opened not
long ago
with coy kisses,
late night
phone calls until sunrise
when a quivering stomach
meant desire,
not fearing
an eventual change
in octave,
or the heavy way
the word hate hangs
between the sheets.
