February 14

1 comment:

  1. Big Bear in the 60s
    was quite primitive

    when the sun went down
    the stores all closed

    after arriving at our cabin
    I came down with the

    stomach flu and
    the stores were all closed

    I couldn’t get 7 Up
    or Pepto-Bismol

    the outside was
    bitter cold

    all night I sat huddled
    in front of the fire

    I watched the fire
    dancing on the logs

    the warmth and the
    flickering flames

    were the only comfort
    in the long night
