Regan’s Birth

  1. Two days ago, right after school,
  2. I came right home, and filled the pool.
  3. We found a leak, and scrapped that plan.
  4. Then moved upstairs. Two hours had spanned.
  5. Two hours more, and things were close.
  6. Out of the tub and to our posts.
  7. Just after six and out he came
  8. A little boy, Regan’s his name.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
