It was always so,
wasting another afternoon
near the window
waiting for her
to walk bye…
 
sometimes
a white summer dress
down Sunset
in the middle of July,
you know,
when I needed it…
 
once,
at a midnight
train ride
on the way home
in December,
maybe not always
during the day
but there was always light…
 
I should have known.
It was never about the words
but the door
it opened.

Young women will do that to young (or old) men! Make their hearts sing like Irish Harps and Irish Tenors! Maybe even like a red-breasted Robin!

He also wrote "The Young Lions" about young men in World War II.

Amongst other books and stories.

St. Louis Cardinals just won the World Series. Always happy for the Cardinals, as they have the best/most beautiful home-team uniforms next to the home-team uniforms of the New York Yankees. (Chicago White Sox fan here.)

And they had the classiest ball player ever: Stan "The Man" Musial, who also became a beer distributor in his retirement. How can you NOT love the guy!

best,
