early september

August 24, 2009

Crickets cheer from

beyond porch screen,


cigar smoke circles

this old night.


I lay asleep at

grandpa’s feet,


Red Sox winning

three  to one.

    I know huh? My dad was a Chicago White Sox fan and he was from New York! During my teen years, I’d sometimes sit with him while he listened to ball games on the radio. In the interest of friendly rivalry (the birth of the betting quarter I still own), I became a Yankees fan. Old habits die hard.
