Elaine's Dream

27 June '85

Dear Joyce,

"In this dream I had," (to quote a favorite poet) I dreamed you had been married to T.S. Eliot for years. You didn't live together because of his sexual preferences, but you had this lovely relationship, each of you being the other's inspiration for the poetry you wrote.

I thought you would like to know what you've been up to in my dreams.

Love, Elaine

(No, Thomas wasn't gay. See how his wife laughs at the mere suggestion!? I'm not sure whether that is his first wife, Vivienne, or his second, Esme Valerie. Either way, it doesn't matter, now does it?)
