July 18th, 2012

The Soccergolf course,
work, and Nature Day Camp plans:
I got hella done.

July 17th, 2012

Dvorak's music,
grandma's company, and the
Mendocino night.

July 16th, 2012

Chrysta's dad visits
from the East coast, a smile
on his bearded face.

July 14th, 2012

Lying on the cold
bathroom floor, I felt the worst
pain in my whole life

July 13th, 2012

Friday the 13th
was not so scary.  We all
swore our love and cried.

July 12th, 2012

As I bent over
to putt, I shifted my weight,
and my back went out.

July 11th, 2012

Finally caught up,
it's strange that I have less time
during the summer.

July 10th, 2012

Chicken Parmigiana,
eaten on the sly, without
my two ladies there.

July 9th, 2012

What am I missing?
Swaddled by family I
can barely see out...

July 8th, 2012

Clyde acts entitled.
Was it something in the way
that we have raised him?

July 7th, 2012

This poem stands where
a better poem once stood.
I do this for love.

July 6th, 2012

The strange ritual
is mental and physical
and so not so strange.

July 5th, 2012

Every mountain
more beautiful than the last,
but sadly no talk.

July 4th, 2012

Arguments daily.
Are we more like or unlike
everyone else?

July 3rd, 2012

Gambling, at last!
I hope to win but plan to
lose a hundred bucks.

July 2nd, 2012

The fabrication
of inspiration, just a
cold calculation.

July 1st, 2012

Drinkin poolside, I
have a cold beer  but it's a
hundred degrees out.

June 30th, 2012

Jaelyn is tall like
Brenda was whereas I am
short, like I once was.

June 29th, 2012

Easter, Thanksgiving,
Christmas and Halloween, all
in summer, how rare!

June 28th, 2012

Every day is
a different holiday:
well of course it is!

June 27th, 2012

Driving to Berkeley,
dropping off Buddha, Thai food,
and then watching Brave.

June 26th, 2012

How many pairs of
pants will I need in Vegas.
Probably none, right?

June 25th, 2012

Hitting it sideways,
too far, or too softly: just
a few ways to suck.

June 24th, 2012

On the back deck, I
read a book about a boy
who has Asperger's.

June 23rd, 2012

Three days til Vegas:
A family reunion
and a vacation.

June 22nd, 2012

I hope that it's true
we'll all live more easily
but I doubt he will.

June 21st, 2012

Tristan has moved on,
but I keep rehashing our 
last conversation.

June 20th, 2012

My fantasy teams
look not so fantastic, just
really pathetic.

June 19th, 2012

Writing haikus in
retrospect, it's not the same
as inspired thought.

June 18th, 2012

Less than a week
until I see my sister:
first time in five years.

June 17th, 2012

First week of summer
will I read, drink at noon or
just be a parent?

June 16th, 2012

I held up a sign
as the buses rolled away
cause that's how I roll.
