the fear remains palpable
decades later

childhood nightmares


trapped in a pit
he screams…to no avail

only a dream

little girls
in cheerleader uniforms

college football

scorching summer day

covered with grass
kids run through water sprinklers

young man reads from the psalms
to his patient wife

it’s a boy

brightly clothed children
hunting easter eggs
magnolia tree in bloom
Christmas evening
boy on new bike
hits parked police car…twice
