Hullo, Aunt Cindy, This is Tony Vance Mason. I am working very hard as a writer and I just wanted to say how much I miss you. I am The Lord (THe WIsh); and I miss you. Some of my poems I put online at All Candra Lynn Mason, my adoptive mother is now 68 years of age since we came to your apartment. I am writing “play-novellas” about youstaring with OIl On Canvas; I miss you angel. Love (your newphew), I have stars on my hands that protect you beautiful Cinderella.

A Poem for you Aunt Cynthia Sue Downen:


Paper Hearts,
to tumble, where
I say,
the wil, trilliums
and Irises blush,
Downen amid the eiderdowns

alive within the world of
black holes in the all white room
will appear at the end
of the series I will reinvent,
next to her friend,
Magical Bob,
that wishes her well, health,
beyond her wildest dreams,
and I remain her savior. Her
richness comes from Cynthia
making her blue ribbon pie
that she won the prize: the
heart of her own yellow
paper rose.

Immortality shone forth upon
the white whisper of the prairie,
and the farm-meadow,
buttercream became stunning in my palm,
the way he held aloft his golden talon,
the gentle dove, combing
Cynthia’s hair strands . . .

oh by the vessel where
the rain poured into buckets of paint
the horse leaped and an owl

went to the trough
and spotted an owl that was cooing,
was drinking,
the fine vine in his beak

[vertuish in Noruquai al’ vec al’ tuc]

(virtue in the puddle of the fortune of luck
in the Land of un-anín)

The language that I left is faerie/angel language.

Love (your nephew),

Cynthia Sue Downen is a very pretty woman and was very best known for her cooking and making gourmet pies and candy. She was an excellent poet, when she showed me some of her poems; I loved her so much as my Aunt Cindy.
