Snow clings to the old maple here like a last night’s lover
desperately hugging her Master Sergeant in the ticket line
so long ago on Boxing Day at McCallum Airport.
He was tall muscular and black, heading back to Vietnam.
But his flight to the base was sold out; her tears
spilled like wine on his pressed marine greens:
she wrapped him like Medusa on a branch
all the way to the door and the Texas sun.
In winter through this second storey window I see them still.

Leisure Arts Duplicate Bridge Results
Leisure Arts Duplicate Bridge is a relaxed club, sponsored by the City of Cornwall.
A fee is payable to the City at the beginning of each season, and a session fee ($3) to the Director before each session.
We meet every Tuesday 1 – 4 pm at the Benson Centre, Cornwall Ontario. There is usually a lesson and a discussion hand from the previous week.
I calculate the scores and send out scores via Google Groups.
If you wish to receive the results, please email me or give me a slip of paper with your name and email address.
