100 Words- June 2, 2015

My baby brother (I have ten years on him) turns sixty-three, today. The only thing I remember about him as a baby was the Saturday he was rushed to the hospital, within a year of his birth, with some kind of ear thing. I remember that it was a Saturday only because that’s the day my father would drop me and my sisters off at the Milo theater and pick us up after the showing. That Saturday, we were into our third showing before he came to do so.

The rumor is my brother almost died. I’ve never seen documentation.


About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
