OctPoWriMo #25: Mississippi
You will never forget how to spell
After the teacher put you through hell
You tried desperately not to cry
You had to know about the place you lived by
A nearby Southern state
Another word that you probably even hate
OctPoWriMo #26: Conversations
glide past sounds from our television.
As you sit down and hold my hand
you unravel decades of history.
I listen and try to hang on to every word.
Sometimes I hear the same story again
but with new details,
and I smile knowing
that if I piece all the stories together
I get to know about your life.
