Jim Geiger

Was my best friend age 9
a muscular hornrimmed kid
actor James Dean in his glasses, studious jock-to-be –
We couldn’t relate when I found marijuana
and he joined the Air Force like his dad – he’d introduced me to WWII games –
Combat, we’d play when it wasn’t spy or outer space

Jimmy – still sorry we ditched you
at the 5 & dime
before there was a mall
