Another World Cup came and went.
I moved cross-country too.
I gave up hope of holding it;
what else was I to do?
But yesterday, the red mail van
arrived with box first sent
to California, then sent here—
its corners awfully bent.
Yet safe and crisp inside the box:
six copies of my tome.
Four years, one month, eleven days…
My book is in my home!
