Dr. R Taught Me

Sometimes you define
Something
Best
By what it is not.

What it is –
Elusive.

What it is not –
I can get to that.

Dr. R taught me this:
Referring to Maimonides
[The secret Maimonides].

I ran into Mrs. R
Many years after her husband’s death;

I’ve written about your
Husband –
All he taught me.

She looked surprised —
Will you send it to me?

Every day I live in the definitions
Of what things are not –

On the way to
What Is;

I wrote this
12:15 PM
Thursday, November 29
In St. Louis Missouri
with my —

meaning making machine.
Green pen.
