I can always find time

Send out book length missives
about the great lakes, underwater
wrecks, depression-era small town
industries & how they all somehow
connect to the episode of Dawson's
Creek
when Pacey & Jen were caught
in the storm, provide remedies for
bad backs & caffeine detox, methods
to combat stage fright, list various
means of distraction & denial, or
wonder if anyone can say how long
it takes for a drowned body to rise
to the surface.

I love the word "missive"!!! Nice work.
Who's Pacey? Who's Jen?
Do I wanna know?
And the answer to the last question is - depends on how much concrete you pour around their ankles.

Good poem. That last image hangs on. And was jen the katie holmes character? I can't remember, which makes me a little proud and a little worried. I also can't remember what an "&" is called, I mean the character, and that just plain worries me. But I like the way you use them here.
