Jack was in my dream.
Laughing and relaxed, he had
on a blue bow tie.

Day draws to a close
and I welcome a long night
of deep, sweet slumber.

I’ve a deep sadness
keeping me tethered to here–
been thinking ’bout Jack.

Disconcerting dreams–
must sit in bed to decide
what’s real and what’s not.

Happy Birthday, Jack–
you would have been 21.
I really miss you.

Remembering Jack —
quirky, funny, musical,
complicated kid.

Robin Williams’ death
gob-smacked me last night. Today
I’m just sad, sad, sad.
