Six Word Journal:
Boston/tiring/pouring rain annoying
The earliest thing I can remember
is the color red.
I can see it in my minds eye.
My mother said it was because
when we lived in Thief River Falls,
around the age of 3 or 4,
I decided to color the white kitchen cabinets
red with a red crayon !
She told me she had me scrub
the cupboard doors
to get the crayon off,
If that isn’t the earliest
I do remember in grade school,
in Ashland, Wisconsin,
looking at the sky,
it was a bright red,
and there was a huge fire across town
I was told.
But in my heart of hearts,
I deeply think I have a memory
of my sister Vicky
and dying a month later.
I was 3 that week.
“R” is for Lucky Rabbit’s Foot
Did you ever have…
why did our parents let us
carry a lucky rabbit’s foot
creating superstitious thinking
in our tender minds?
I can remember being in grade school
and it was “The Thing” to carry
a lucky rabbit’s foot key chain.
I found out that it was
supposedly a REAL rabbit’s foot !
In particular, the left hind foot !
I’m sure that I had
a faux rabbit’s foot keychain
bought at my dad’s
F.W. Woolworth Store.
But at the time, I was SURE some poor
rabbit, sacrificed his life, on a full moon,
in a cemetery,
on Friday the 13 th.
Well, maybe…Where’s your rabbit foot
you got in grade school hiding?
