from my car seat in a silver chevy station wagon
 1
I look at Grammy
 2
in the dusty grey morning
 3
she trembles
 4
holds her hand to her mouth and weeps
 5
I say to my protective father
 6
"why is Gram crying?"
 7
as we drive out of my grandparents lives again
 8
"they are tears of joy, Danny" my dad replies
 9
"tears of joy"

A poignant moment captured dramatically. I've never been myself (that was supposed to be a poetic moment captured emphatically via unclear antecedant). Thank you!!

to spam or not to spam, that! is the question. to question entance exams, that! is not the question currantly at hand. what is at hand then you ask? the snowman's orbs calling out to ray orbison on a warm sunny day so clear you can the ozark mountains in your rear view mirror. a carrot notched parrot that insists on bistro dips. call us for free and we  will produce your groceries via accosted lacross shirt pockets lines with first rate term paper and aligned with wind chime chimeras. donald duck playing with platapus in a heap of ungraded papers? we do that too. attack each problem from every conceivable angle with inconcievable angels hanging onto rembrandt. unclog that writer's block with a patch of toggled tulips!! do it today before florida takes back its oranges.
