long time no blog – magic

a short story / poem about my family:

one day in Kansas a woman went out side with a sweet potato and yelled
and she threw it on the ground and went back inside
the next day
a man came to the house and asked her out on a date
that man was the only man she’d ever known that wasn’t a pig

and that woman is my mom and that man is my dad

a poem about my folks, by Lena Marvin

  1. Thanks, it was great to remember this. And yes Bob is not a pig, nor is he particularly fond of sweet potatoes. It did increase my appreciate of sweet potatoes.
