I got an email from Agatha Christie

I got an email from Agatha Christie—
it said: Good for you, baby,
I’m proud of you.
Let’s do dishes again real soon.

Wasn’t that sweet?
How many people get email from famous authors
from beyond the grave?
Only me and Stephen King.
Of course, a lot of his are creepy.

And let’s get one thing straight.
“Dishes” is not code for secret.
wild, sweaty, creative, mystical, literary sex—
although it easily could be.

—Don Whittington
