Wha Hoo!

My grandmother was a quiet woman. 
She was not the kind, to go out often. 
A church picnic, and or a family gathering, 
All were just fine. 

Yet, her calm demure could be disturbed. 
Not easily mind you. 
It took just the right … event.

A board game. 
2 x 2 marbles and dice, 
played with friends,
“Is twice as nice.”

She would comb back her lovely hair. 
Pin it close in a bun. 
Tight!...
as to not get in the way. 
Her best blouse, the one with the pockets…
The one I sewed them on. (by hand when I was seven)
Plenty of room for her cigarettes and matches.
 
Gather together with Papa and two more, 
everyone was ready to start the score. 
They would play not a little, 
but clear into the night. 

It was a good time, 
Even…when there was a fight.
