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



Tom Clausen, mostly from Homework (Snapshot Press 2000)


                    —  sorry no new haiku from dagosan, who has been napping all day —


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.”
