HAND YOU DOWN STORIES
(a poem for Kenneth Mills, the Historian)
hand YOU down stories.
not gossip.
but
hand YOU down stories.
Recipes.
Love positions, ie
sex education.
Book-less exploits.
Hand YOU down stories.
Almost like
pages of
dresses
and
chapters
of
hand me down shoes.
But
hand YOU down stories
are much more lasting
than hand ME down tales.
Hand ME down stories end marriages.
Hand YOU down stories…
stop
wars.
