from a great-grandkid poem #1

 one hears family stories that are
revealed quite late sometimes only
as conjecture for instance my friend’s
paternal great-grandmother when the
men in black pulled up in their black
hearse-like cars she shoved all her
children under the dining room table
its cloth to the floor the men went
down to her basement came up left
she lifted her long skirt rolled a wad
of money into her stocking it was
prohibition one of the tablecloth
kids told her granddaughter who
told it to me what’s your guess?
