These drafts, ordered from most recent to oldest, reflect the many changes to Goedicke's meditation on presenence and absence, sound and silence. Based on the notes at the top of each draft, the poem has been read by Sally, Sarah, and Melissa. These are most likely Sally Moore, Sarah Gridley, and Melissa Kwasny. It should also be noted that the poem underwent further revisions before it appeared in The Baseball Field at Night.
