Come Hither

Another summer is poised to close. My mind is so low on the horizon it's making inappropriate gestures to fall. Come hither. Quickly. I'd like to talk to you. In fact, I'm making arrangements for hikes and bonfires and Deep As Lake Superior Apple Pie. My poems are lining up for migration into a chapbook. My offspring are polishing their shoes for school. I'm falling into silly rhyming. Oh, do come hither. Do, do, do.

Out Of The Blue

A text from Jo came buzzing.

I saw a dead guy yesterday.


There was a car accident in the park and I happened to be driving on the Avenue (of the Giants) before the ambulance got there. It was a motorcylist. It was pretty bad. His brains were over the road.

What did you do?

I directed traffic for a few minutes until calfire got there. Then I went to a birthday party and ate blackberry pie.

She's come a long way from the girl who wouldn't mow the lawn ever again after running over a bull frog. She is traveling deep into her own life and I wish I could see her face, although I don't know what I'd say.

Voir Dire

(Working too much, but still seeing the world. Picking a jury for a "bad baby" med mal case. The attorney wants to know how the potential jurors will feel if they see the child.)

DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Would it be hard for you not to make a decision before you hear all the evidence?
VENIREWOMAN: Like right now I'm impartial, but seeing something like that it could. I guess sometimes your feelings, you know, give out on you more than your mind.
