Keith, Johnye,
 
I just finished reading this and I loved it. The lady knows how to write.
There will be reprints of this for sure.
 
She says, "Of course I imagine you or Johnye?  will pull all the attributions out for my poems and stick 'em at the end. I did not go overboard on them as far as details"    Johnye, can you do this? Do you have time?
Do you need me to help you or I can try to do it.
 
Do we teak before or after it's posted? Anita found 2 tiny tweaks...
...and then read on--below she's explaining the spaces that she left (to be left as is)
 
Thanks, guys
 
Carol

Carol dear,
I wrote this [****below the divider line]  weeks ago and have held it in draft depending on whether or not you accepted     GARDEN.
And damn if I didn't find a couple of spots to tweak for I reread the ms. again this a.m.
 
2 tiny changes:
 
p. 15    in the paragraph beginning "Around Easter" line 3, I discovered I left out the word "it". 
             Correction is: "to put it in"
 
p. 28    in the middle of the last paragraph where I'd said the birds eat the berries " in fall."  Hell, they are    eating them now!  I didn't realize they redden so soon.  But they have. Catbirds, thrashers, titmice going apeshit eating them yesterday.
So change it to read:  "All the birds eat its berries soon as they redden."

***Within the text, I would like to keep the two different red typefaces  [Kristen and Curlz] as accents. Can you do this?   
 
BITE ME
 
Raised-bed Garden
 
Also, watch my 'paragraphing' vagaries.  They are all intentional. 
Sometimes I will leave air space after a paragraph for a slight pause and continue on flush left [no indentation] for it is really part of the same paragraph,  sense-wise.
 
I also created what I call "break spaces" where the text has a natural  shift to another topic:   Big gaps. 
But in certain places where a photo or a poem comes in, that acts to serve as a 'break' or shift . . .  I think all this helps the rhythm and flow of the piece.    Is it a problem for you?
 
If there is a lack of punctuation just before a photo goes in, pay heed.  That sentence will continue on  after the photo.
 
Of course I imagine you or Johnye?  will pull all the attributions out for my poems and stick 'em at the end.  I did not go overboard on them as far as details.    You have all my book credit details on file I am sure.  In a couple of spots [Knopf Everyman's Library Ed.  Haiku of 2003 and Mann Library 2009], I chose to put in more recent reprints even though the original source for almost everything was my own books.  If there is a problem with that, lemme no.  I hate messin' with these nit-picking formalities. 
Do whatcha gotta doo.
