Welcome 2016


In First Grade

the complexities of adult life
manifest themselves
in any assignment.

After a kicker,
worth over three million dollars,
a season,

misses hard to the left,
kicking his team out of the playoffs,
Tommy understands

and sends his marker-soaked reminder,
“Keep on trying.  Puppys are cute.”
