glimpses of fatherhood

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 12:32 am


evening star…
she sleeps with the lion’s tail
in her little hand


 

 

 

 









sick in bed –
my son pelts the window
with snowballs


 

 

breeding pairs
at the zoo-
with strollers

 

 

 

 

 






spring sun-
     high in his arms
     the newborn is shown

 

 

 

 

 

 

bowed to the ground
the golden rods
too tall of themselves –
         I couldn’t tell her why
         the sky is blue

potluck


black envelope  The mailman brings the most trivial mail on Saturday. Today,

two enterprises sought my money for the first time — Playboy and

Libertarian National Committee.  Although they both have a few interesting

ideas, I won’t be subscribing to either.

 

tiny check  Like Daniel Solove, I’m glad that the FTC has decided to use its power

to stop “unfair practices” in the fight to keep consumer financial information received

by retailers secure.   An act or practice is unfair if it “causes or is likely to cause

substantial injury to consumers which is not reasonably avoidable by consumers

themselves and notoutweighed by countervailing benefits to consumers or to competition.”
