Dear Anne Waldman from Maki

Dear Anne Waldman,

Why did you make the poem? What does “I am a horse woman” mean to you? I noticed when you read the poem you read it with a long ending. I also noticed you used the same phrase. Why did you say “I am a devilish-clown woman.”? Do you like clowns? I don’t! When I was at my friend’s house there was a clown for her b-day party. I hated the clown so much. I hid behind the whole line because it was creepy.
