Fireworks

A poem I wrote for a couple of friends ended up winning me a $10 Barnes and Noble gift certificate at Sol magazine:

After the travesty that my marriage turned out to be I find it comforting to have friends whose marriages actually seem to work.

As for Jill and Denis, I do want to clarify that they do like night sky fireworks but of a different kind. One of my favorite memories with Jill and Denis was the time we decided to go see the Leonids in the middle of the night (Denis has a PhD in Astronomy and had some insights into the best places for viewing)and drove up Angeles Crest Highway with some of our younger kids (they have 3 kids the same ages as my 3 kids). This was a few years ago during a year when the Leonids were particularly good, and I have some great memories of sitting on lawn chairs at 3 am in the mountains above LA watching meteors with friends.
