12. Strawberries


Strawberries are found in her dreams in her earliest memory on the kitchen table, in the California setting, next to her mom.

A strawberry shortcake scented doll was her only friend when her parents left her for only one night with the man their friend and his English wife.

She only remembers the man who watched  the football game on the screen in the dark and alone like she felt so long ago only two.

No brother to call her own as yet, only strawberries to comfort her.
