Dear Mark Doty,
My name is David and I live in Boston. My favorite part of the poem was the first, second, and third verse. I like how you use descriptions of going to the pharmacy and being a student. I wanted to know why you didn't show how the boy got the ice cream in the fourth stanza. I also wanted to know what you have to do to read a poem in front of an audience and how you speak a poem.
