Poem, September 6

Game Day Ritual

Turn the channel to College Gameday
I need to see what They say about the Hogs.
I wait for the phone call from dad.
The ritual of the phone call every time they play

He won't be calling anymore
That ritual died when he did.

comes the text.
Are you ready for the game?
A new game day ritual starts with my daughter.

  1. I had a similar ritual with my dad is the spring when the track results would come out in the paper. I'd call him from Texasexas and tell him how "Belived Brown from Beaumont Central had run the 100m in 11.58" and he'd tell me about some girl from Carthage who was triple jumpling 38 feet or something.....sigh
