April 1

     The fools day – when, at last

we went sunbathing again, baking

ourselves in the backyard.  I

became impatient after awhile

and smeared myself with vinegar –

so that now my face is a cross

between an overripe tomato and

a gleaming beacon light of friend-


     This evening Cary and I went

to the playground in back of

Matthew Whaley and swung

on swings and seesawed.  It

was the first I’d done that in

ages and felt about 12.
