Peotry – Veronica

Veronica Her delicate purple flowers Gaze into my eyes. I mark the hours As Helios’ chariot flies.   Veronica’s lovely eyes close. For dusk overtakes As the moon bull lows. I must leave her till dawn breaks.   How intimate was it to share The tender embrace Of my love so fair As sleep overtook […]

Peotry – Graying Light

Graying Light My senses chase a graying light, As grains of memory slip through the fingertips Of the hourglass of my brain.   My world turns and slips to night, For memories dissolve like slow departing ships On a salty sea of ebbing pain.   But through this world of dimming sight Where tears and […]

Poetry – The Mouse in My Pocket

The Mouse in My Pocket I have a mouse in my pocket. I told my friend Thomas, and he said “There’s no way! Your pocket isn’t near big enough for a mouse!” “But I do!” I told him. “Sure you do,” he said.   Then my friend Philip spoke up. “Hey,” he said, “I’ve got […]

Poetry – Christopher

Christopher I bought a Betta fish last week. I named him Christopher, and I picked him out Because he was white and pale grey. But when I brought him home and put him in his new warm tank, He erupted in reds and purples and blues over the next three days. I never would have […]

Poetry: The Trees Grow Out of the Air

The Trees Grow Out of the Air A Broken Sonnet   The old contented gentlemen will say That of the mighty tree; it grows from root And over years of nurturing it may Grow tall and broad from this established foot. On this they will repose and gently sigh When young men dare to dream […]

My brother asks about Ali-Liston 2 pt. 2

Ali-Liston II : May 25, 1965 Considering that he had proven to himself that he could slay the giant, Ali was much more confident going into the second Liston fight. Liston however, was very concerned for reasons that were above and beyond getting slapped the ring for fifteen rounds like a Catholic school boy, if […]

My brother asks about Ali-Liston 2 pt. 1

Jersey Joe Walcott – The Oldest Heavyweight Champion and Shortest Lived Heavyweight Champion Referee. In true Ali style, the rematch with Liston in 1965 would lend another indelible phrase to the boxing lexicon. While the first fight was an instant classic with the line “I am the Greatest”, the second was stamped by the press […]

World’s Greatest Dad

I have been accused many times of saying things that are, at best, inappropriate. It could be because of circumstances (making a lighthearted death joke in a terminal cancer ward), audience (trying to make small talk with a barely-English-speaking Japanese foreign exchange student by bringing up a recent documentary I saw on a Japanese-American WWII […]
