In the January 2001 manuscript, these three poems were added per Thom Ward's request for more poems in Book of My Nights. Noted are the pencil edits on the margins of the "Buried Heart" and "My Pillow": they mostly focus on the word choice and construction of the poems rather than the contents of the poem. This is one of the few times that Ward deconstructs Lee's poems in this way. "Degrees of Blue" lacks the edits of the other two but shows some interesting personal reminders and correspondence.
