Same Thomas walton as in Portland 10 years ago, really good poet, with brother in BOISE (...) ? Poem titles sound similar to social courtesies?

I'm on the other side of the country, but I'll be there anyway. THAT T. Walton was very much cool and fun...

hm. crystal--she I haven't seen in 15 years.
Hate computers. The Thomas Walton I knew wrote in spiral notebooks, like a sensible tribesman...
Further clarification:
I was Awfully Sorry: I was just going into (found out later) long beastly ailment of anemia and hyper (very hyper) thyroid disorder --they both impair higher thought processes (...). Maybe one sunny day in the woods, that same Thomas Walton will forgive me...Jackie (I had to move back east for a while--not moving back west for a while, so--just wanted you to know you have one more person who thinks you're a Truly Fine Poet!!! (Rara avis!) Carve that in your rifle stock...
