Ivan Jenson

This is for you

this is
for the afternoons
you went
out of your way
and those
of time loans
rescued me
from eviction
and this is
for picking up
the phone
past midnight
and for the
long rides
to destinations
that were
so very important
at the time
and after
all the
dues we paid
this is
still true:
