thanksgiving eve day
the gatherings begin now
students scatter to
far flung parents’ homes
neighbors’ drives spill onto streets
christmas lights appear
to the store today for last minute supplies for Mom, I notice that my
young downstairs neighbors (students both) are gone. There are a lot of
students living in my neighborhood. Other neighbors driveways are
populated with out-of-state plates.
I’ll head out tonight for Mom’s in Hoover, 15 minutes down I 65, to help her and my sister with food prep for tomorrow.
