A subject never raised

I would have loved to capture that Jinx – our Jinx – but, being her cousin, albeit twice removed and not much older than her, I did not qualify. Not that the subject ever came up.

Now she’s married, happily it seems, with two cute kids, and I get to see her every once in a while, at birthday or funeral parties, as it is among relatives.

    I was at the “International Poetry Page” at http://www.geocities.com/johbeil/transl_index.html where I saw the Bruni poem on a list, but could not access it for the longest time. Finally I got there, but then again could not get any further. Finally logged in and now things open immediately.
