Return to me
My special angel
You belong to me
It's just a matter of time
You're breaking my heart
You always hurt the one you love.
Goodnight, Irene
Autumn leaves...

I read this on-air during KBOO's 2001 Dada festival. The reading occurred via cellphone from the Powel's cafe in Portland, OR as part of a Portland e2con. I found the "poem" that morning in ideath's funhouse; later I learned of the dada festival. It was a wonderful coincidence.
