Not good news, Ken. By the way, I should have thanked you for taking me
seriously and giving all that explanation of your pome which made me
understand it very well.
I'm sad now, and it has nothing to do with your pomes which I always like
very much. Actually my heart is broken. I'm holding the poem I got back
today in class. She gave me an F on it. She said it was plagiarized which
means copied. But why would I copy anything when I love to write poetry?!
I'm a sad person right now, K.
