"It's about words, and words are all I have…"



We lived next door to a family of 4

The Churlies    The mother had dimples

everywhere   in kitten heels by 8 a.m.

The dog was hit by the Canada Post truck

My father predicted this stroke of bad luck


The daughters were look-alikes  & prone to

tears   One day the father  a beefy&arrogant

man  went down on one knee  in front of me

He said:  I wish my daughters would read a book


It seemed too late  the dye was cast   It would be

swimming pools & movie stars for the Churlie girls

In their dreams  mostly   in their dreams


Granny: Elly May! Don’t spit from a moving vehicle.

Wait till it’s stopped. 

(Beverly Hillbillies 1962-1971)
