Ivana Knezevic

I will always do my best, Ivana Knezevic. I have checked your page several times and never seen a poem. I am imperfect and I did not even know that I was about to become a member of an extended virtual family until the very post in which you announced it. I knew you liked me and found me sometimes entertaining, sometimes touching, and sometimes just an odd rambling writer who likes to respond and talk about war, robots, the cosmos, college basketball and why Joe Frazier is the greatest pound for pound fighter of all time. So I was a little shocked to go from loveable oddball to centrally important figure to you and Zev. As to my illness I have never retched so many times so hard and at times almost got dizzy from the sheer physical exertion. I thought I might have to go get an IV at a hospital to rehydrate. my head is a bit woozy and my ribs ache as I write this. I will try to do my best and I will read your poem when you post it. Zev, Shahzeb Akhter, give some help to me buddy. We are the twin planets and when the Sun turns her singular power on one of us we gotta give some shade and comfort to the other.
