A plaque on a bench facing the Thames on London’s South Bank. It reads: “Memorial to the unknown husband/ often imagined/ much desired/ never found.” My friend N. pointed it out. She’s a promising writer. That is she promises to write, but doesn’t. There’s a warning here for aspiring scribblers: “Memorial to the unknown writer/ often imagined/ much desired/ never wrote.”
