Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 6:34 pm

Spending a cloudy Sunday alone can have its

melancholic moments.  However, there are some  

very nice advantages: napping at will; lazily going

through the newspaper; and picking a few newly-

discovered poems by Jim Kacian:

 

 

 

 

repotting the jade . . .
regretting
that I am childless

 





spiltWine

 

 

                                          bees drunk on my wine this flower-filled day

and madisonian.net.

 

 

tiny check  I agree with Jeremy Richey that Barack Obama’s reasons for

voting against Judge Roberts’ nomination are not persuasive.

However, it’s only fair to point out that it is George W. Bush

who is always telling us that he’s looked into someone’s eyes

and seen his soul or his good heart.  Obama gets to make

similar assessments.
