this is embarassing

5 Aug

how is it that baseball names and violin sounds
hit me so hard in the gut. i cry.
shouldn’t an oil spill arouse this kind of emotion?

maybe the rain storm is what matters and not what causes it.
any kind of tears fertilize my view and then
trees, leaves, and dogs look better in their skin.

and there is a new day kind of feeling no matter what time it is.

*broken bats baseball on violins causing tears
expos family tree

    Yes, it is embarrassing! I sob at parades with old fashioned marching music – especially German stuff. Oktober Fest in Milwaukee was a tough one on me! And I think you are absolutely right – it’s the storm, not the cause that means everything. I hardly ever care “why” about anything – only that “it is”.

      Ah, the old ‘it is what it is’ thing.

      I think it’s good, real good to have baseball or German fest as our floating roots…so reliable and loyal no matter how many detours we take.
