Bingo

Saturday night

Dad washed, I dried

the supper dishes

while Mom armed herself

for Early Bird bingo at seven

in the church basement:

her lucky piece

(a smooth quarter she’d won the first time out),

seat cushion,

and a White Owls box of pink plastic markers.

slide3

Dad read the paper

watched TV with me

until Mom returned,

announcing her triumph with a door slam

and a shout

“I was hot!”

Flinging her hat,

twirling out of her jacket,

she pulled dollar bills

from her pockets

before setting them free

to flutter like fat spring snow.

slide4

“Ninety-two dollars!” she squealed

as Dad hugged her off the floor.

“Ninety-two dollars!”

In bed I listened to

mumbled voices

planning to spend the money-

on groceries

school clothes

A leaky radiator-

and wished she’d buy

a shiny red dress

long white gloves

and clickety-click high heels.

Gum Drop

Although I think its mean and cruel,

They don’t let us chew gum in school

slide8

It was many and many a year ago,

In a kingdom by the sea,

That a maiden there lived whom you may know

By the name of ANNABEL LEE;

And this maiden she lived with other thought

Than to love and be loved by me

(3 missing stanzas)

And neither the angels in heaven above,

Nor the demons down under the sea,

Can ever dissever my soul from the soul

Of the beautiful ANNABEL LEE:

slide9

For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams

Of the beautiful ANNABEL LEE:

And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes

Of the beautiful ANNABEL LEE:

And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side

Of my darling-my darling- my life and my bride,

In the sepulchre there by the sea-

In her tomb by the sounding sea.

Edgar Allan Poe
