Fairfax, VA, USA. A decision of reckless caution that won't do much more than put a check mark by his name. Washington Nationals are in first place by many games. The summer continues to intersperse hot humid days with warm ones with less humidity and unseasonably cool nights that hinder the ripeness of tomatoes. The poet does her stuff, scrupulously avoid the people across the Potomac the best she can. Robin Williams dies in Tiburon, California. Lauren Bacall quickly follows in New York. All 16 Hollywood icons mentioned in Madonna's 1990 pop song "Vogue" have now died.
Major General Harold Greene is killed in an attack in Afghanistan. James Brady dies in Alexandria, Virginia , collateral damage in an assassination attempt.
So it goes.
Quarter moon, full moon, quarter moon, none
