Eleven Words - One Poem

                              I let him sleep in my bed --
                              he stole my dreams.
                                       -- Ellen Miller

(My dear friend Ellen, living on St. Mark's Place (in the same block where Auden lived), wrote this poem.  I love it, and I love all the blank whiteness I can see surrounding it on a page; the empty space indicating all that needs not be said because these eleven words say enough.)
