miracle on 131st

remember those days we sat 
over looking railroad tracks 
picking up rusty metal E's
while collecting long cattails 
to burn keeping the mosquitos 
at bay while my eyes were 
dazzled by lightening bugs 
we'd catch placing them 
in mason jars sometimes 
my cousin would put them 
on my ears for glamorous jewels
i fancied that as we sat reciting 
hymms humming throughout 
langley street leading straight to 
our lady of the gardens entrance way 
funny how long four o'clock took
opening her flowers right at mass 
the gentle way you tended 
to my scars on my knees 
after a long run of hill deal 
at george washington carver school 
retrieving golf balls just to tee off 
before big momma called us 
for dinner i was so young then 
our time will never end you were all that i had 
much more than that you were my dad
