Their Game

“‘Baseball is their game; baseball is their argument’ —George Oppen; You’re forced to deal, one way or another, with that mentality” —Tim Jacobs. Habits don’t protect us from experience; they protect us from waffling between uncertainties. We are obsessed, because of the lack of acceptable models, with relationships. “Love for Sale” by pianist Martha Young and trio at Mary’s Pizza in Cotati. Can’t be cool; got to bite and pine.
