March 1985

 

Douglas, Roger, and Dad

 

I remember

you

 

when we used to share a job

how you would stop

to tell me things

my youth could not have seen …

… and how Charlie

used to brag

about us

and how wed never agree

but for music

and stereos …

… and how a customer

could walk away from you

their day made bright

just by talking …

… and how we used to joke

over steaming hot coffee

on a hill

by the bay

in the fall

 

thank-you

for showing me the ropes

for giving me some fond memories

for ignoring my ignorance

may God bless you

even more

than He has blessed me

through you

 


 

All my mentors, great and small, the first bit.

Douglas Law, block artist, the Charlie bit.

Roger Burton, Sears, the customer bit.

Dad and I siding a house in the fall out on

Rednersville Road the final and best bit.
