Pick Up Sticks
Imaginary playlist: "Pick Up Sticks," by the Dave Brubeck Quartet, followed by "Take Five."
It'll be a gigantic game of pick-up sticks, leading to the woodpile.
Thanks to Heurtelions for this lovely picture of Jeu de Mikado, or pick-up sticks!
Speaking of sports and games, I have a poem in the current issue of Intentional Walk, a new journal of sports poetry! What a perfect title for such a journal, eh? After a sportsy hello from editor Greg Weiss, you'll see a wonderful variety of sports poems, including my "Swimmer's Ear."
Looking forward to summer and lap swimming, yessiree!
