with a mistake–
writing an acquaintance about
an upcoming event I was certain
she would find useful, trying
to pin her down: see you there?
Better, I think, to offer
and pay attention.
I’m wrestling with mistakes–
this wrestling, this pinning down.

“Wrestling” is my August 9th poem for the postcard poetry project. I used an antique card titled “Mount Baker from Lopez Island in the San Juan Islands, Washington,” and mailed it to Kim R. of Deming, Washington.
Blessings to Kim and all, Andy
