About the Poems
by Fritz Ward
Dear Reader, these four love letters and lonely doppelganger are part of a manuscript-in-waiting, Let Her. They're also part of a larger obsession with the epistolary-mode. I could tell you about each individual poem—like how "A _____ is a World . . ." was a result of reading too much science fiction and fantasy this summer while contemplating how to propose to the woman I loved—but I'm not quite willing to completely undress for you just yet. What fun is a one-sided seduction? Besides, I'm more interested in hearing your reactionary musings than listening to myself talk. Shoot me a missive (or a poem in response) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
