old preacher screamed
to illustrate his sermon
of Jesus and the higher life

sweat sliding down
his muscly mahogany face

we sat shaking with muffling
laughter
watching our mother trying to save
herself from the wave

only our father remaining poker face

split peas Sunday soup
with dumplings, fufu and pigtails

Be a butterfly
Be a butterfly
