Letter to the Editor

 

ink penDear Sir:

I was gratified to find my poem “Tenacatita Bay” included in the January issue under the byline of that talented and prolific writer Anon. He/she has written so many and so varied poems, limericks and epitaphs that I am flattered to be mentioned in his/her body of work.

Unfortunately I am now being investigated for plagiarism, as this poem appears in my recent “Collected Poems” - available at many outlets for an amazingly low price. The sales of my book will never cover my astronomical legal costs.

I also wish to compliment Kay Thompson on her brilliant description of her “Trip To The Butterflies.”  Joan and I had a similar not-to-be-repeated experience.  Those butterflies know how to choose an inaccessible spot to mate, so spare yourself a long hike and let them procreate in peace.

Yours (not anonymously)

Michael Warren

Our Editor Replies:

Dear Michael,

I am sorry for the misstep but the poem had no  name of author, and on two occasions I asked at the bi-monthly Ajijic Writers’ Group   if anyone had written the poem. This   happens when people send me material that does not carry their names, and the only way I can later identify the author is by tracing my e-mails, which more times than not have already been deleted.
