It's Here Somewhere

I got something in the mail today. It was nothing urgent, but something I did not want to ignore. I knew exactly where it was going: the WIDGAR file. I’ve got one right beside my spot at the kitchen table…

One small thing  

And other small things  

Got together and made  


A better day  

If even  

Just a little.  


I went to the VA today for an appointment. Park, text “here,” then wait for instructions. Proceed to the building…

Red Eye, Please

Kari asks me, “Is it half-time yet?” It’s hockey. They play three periods, so I guess halfway through the second period is technically “half-time.” Kari knows that. She’s being funny.
