Glancing at the cover

of a Metro newspaper

and musing over the photo


It’s all about baseball

but the title “Trout Fishing”

makes me think of Brautigan


St. Richard of Brautigan:

Truly a prophet;

a man ahead of his time.


He wrote “Trout Fishing in America.”

decades before

a baseball legend was born.


The time for canonization

is upon us.
