Heart surfaced back in Michigan 
with Jean at Gram’s memorial service
and in New York on Ruthie’s balcony.

Driving Edwina to dialysis kept me real
between paper route, carpool and church
secretary trips to the printer.

Heart leaped as Duffy starred in
You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown

and soared as I joined The Ribbon peace march.

Post Distributer and Housing Rehab Inspector Ted
bought an RV; we drove cross-country but family
bonds only weakened as debts and taxes rose.
