Past Streets and Houses

Unknown-4

I began my life living in an

old house, with a tunnel attached to the

second floor as a fire escape, that was called

the town’s name plus ‘Memorial Hospital’,

two years after the war; … (the boomer war!)

***

SHE (my mother) had another one like me, in that old house,

before they built a new hospital that later, converted itself into the

school board administrative building where

we rode the elevator to the

second floor and back as many

times as we could.

***

It was great fun … thrilling, even though

it took practically five minutes to get

there and back.

We were in the rocket ship of our dreams.
