Hi Brad how’s it going?
Fine Chuck, just fine
He scraped the snow off his shoes
In the vestibule.
Missed you at the breakfast yesterday
Those four guys really cooked up a spread
Nope, had some other stuff going
Diane not with you today?
Just a little under the weather
And Bill’s team off on a bus trip
Hockey…he’s all over the place.
Can’t get two words with the boy.
Oh well, he’s busy
And that’s good.
Yeah, I suppose.
Jean and I would really like
To have you two over soon.
Sure let’s work it out.
Look a little off-colour Brad
You sure everything’s OK?
Oh, God is good my man
Think I’ll take a seat.
…”And here are the Stinsons
Sue, you’re a real picture in that dress.”
And Brad settles in his pew
Light turned red and warm
Through the stained glass above
Falling beside him
On the hardwood bench.
