In a Field of Daisies


Strolling through a book

as though I was in a field

of daisies on a lazy summer

day reading a book,

I discovered that my


son was born on the same

day as Heavy Metal Cross-

Bow Hunting Rock Star

what’s-his-name. It was

the best day of my life. It was


a great day in his life.

It was a great day

for thrashy heavy metal.

It was a great day for ears.

And amps. And arrows

that kill deer. They look

up quickly and say “Whaa-”

and then nothing. It was a

great day for the word
