1 picture: i know it's tiny (i took it on my old cell) but i thought it was exhilarating.
this is a poem that i read a long time ago in elementary school. i can't seem to find the author to it. does anyone know who wrote it? but i loved it ever since. it is quite quirky:]
Dad washed, I dried
the supper dishes
while Mom armed herself
for Early Bird bingo at seven
in the church basement:
her lucky piece
(a smooth quarter she’d won the first time out),
and a White Owls box of pink plastic markers.
Dad read the paper
watched TV with me
until Mom returned,
announcing her triumph with a door slam
and a shout“I was hot!”
Flinging her hat,
twirling out of her jacket,
she pulled dollar bills
from her pockets
before setting them free
to flutter like fat spring snow.
“Ninety-two dollars!” she squealed
as Dad hugged her off the floor.
In bed I listened to
planning to spend the money-on groceries
A leaky radiator-
and wished she’d buy
a shiny red dress
long white gloves
and clickety-click high heels.
