My dad went to Vietnam. He signed up before being drafted so he’d have a better chance once he got there. That’s how he described it, at least. He never talks about it, but that was one of the things I knew about him as I kid and I was always very proud of the fact.

I’m not good at these little shorties, but you got a lot of atmosphere and subtext going on here. The kind of short poem that brings up a lot of different associations.

Good on you, BB.

Been so long I can't remember what I did before induction . . . probably wanted to cry, but . . . everyone knows--big boys don't cry . . . but they sure as hell could die.
