We're Working on It

Yankee Pot Roast,

As an admirer and appreciater of your online publication I wonder if there is a printed collection of the best daily pieces. I very much would like a volume if so, to have and to hold, to love and to cherish, to laugh with and learn about my body with, to fawn and dote over, to develop an attachment bordering on dependence with, to become jealous of the power and hold and sway its opinion of me means to me, to accuse of infidelitous thoughts, to push down just once, and only because I’m so afraid of losing it, to stand in the rain across the street from at late, long hour intervals, to call in moments of drunken longing and cynicism, to wonder if, after so many
months without contact, it has my favorite green sweater, the one I’d been looking for earlier that week.
