To the poetry lover
When you told me you loved poetry, I could hardly believe it. I apologize if I sound prejudiced but with that straight, impenetrable face of yours, you didn`t strike me as someone who could have such a sensitive side. But then I remembered that some poets do look more like burocratics than poets.
Listen, I am sorry for the perception I had of you; I swear that after your revelation, I started looking at you with different eyes.
If you agree to it, I would like us to have lunch sometime and talk about (American) poetry.
Depending on your convenience, I will be prepared for such a discussion. It will give me a great pleasure to exchange opinions on such an interesting subject as this. And, at the same time, I may also be given the opportunity to find out that not only a sensitive human being but also a very romantic person.
See you soon
