Young Sundays

Poem • December 1, 1998

sunday afternoons of football games
and lukewarm chip dip
have become the staple connecting
my loose-leaf memories

I run to hide
I run to escape
with a cousin or two

as the first blanket of snow falls
slower than the sheet tucking me in
the family gathers around
the glowing television fire
