Postcard from Pablo

This card is a bit of a surprise. The great Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, who died 13 days before my family moved to Bolivia on October 6th, 1973, is apparently still writing notes to people more than 30 years after his death. He's also decided to use a postage stamp with his own image on his card to me, made sure that this postcard bore no postal marks, and included a poem by John M. Bennett on the card (instead of one of his own). Apparently, Pablo is a big fan of the Five Million Copies Project of well-known cybersquatter Ross Priddle.

Pablo,

Thanks for writing! La vida es sueƱo, no?

Good guess about dbpq! Thanks! I've made the correction.

Written any good poem recently?
