The Year of the Writer     This year, against all expectation, was my greatest adventure.  I set sail for a desert island, where  Stockholm syndrome sex ensued with a pirate chief,  watched shadows canter through summer trees  as I said goodbye to a beloved riverside cottage,  ran for a grumpy train, drunk to my eyeballs  through snow-packed Moscow streets,  opened a door, a butterfly wing, a suitcase  packed with memories, a car door, a letter.  All the while, you thought I smiled and slurped  good local wine as I chatted mutely on Zoom.
