MY PRECIOUS MOM, ME AND BABY BROTHER TOMMY

Tommy who was being baptized in the spring
he was born in May
he was the last of us 5 kids.
He was very small with a curl on his head
he had a mark on his face
that was red.
It went away
at an early age.
He does not have to this day.
Tommy was baptized at St Rita’s
down the street–
I had my hair pulled back in a ponytail
very neat.
My mom is young
with reddish auburn hair
my brother John is beside us
with a blank stare.
I remember the day faintly
which is a flash in time
it was a memorable day
in my young life.
