#5 I Remember

I Remember

The line for the single pay-phone in high school
After school
If there was a game
Or a meeting

Adjusting the rabbit-ears on the TV
to get one of four channels
Hearing the Star-Spangled Banner
when TV ended for the night.

Using the card catalog
to research for a paper
Searching the stacks
finding unexpected treasures

Wondering if my kids were alright
when they went out
with friends
especially as teens
