My Father's Thermos


                ... he worked away from home to put food on the table / came back on the weekends
   
... at the bottom of his lunch pail ... a candy bar / three musketeers for three daughters
                                             
                                           ... five decades later / I still feel the weight of my father's thermos
                       




My reading of it on public radio, KAXE: http://www.kaxe.org/Audiobox/Beat/KAXE_Beat_2014_02_03_TEvangeline_MyFthr%27sThermos.mp3

  1. I remember reading a post of yours about your father's thermos, Teresa (or was it this poem?). I started noticing thermoses in antic stores and an older hardware store I sometimes go to, just because of you. Lovely.

    1. Yes, I wrote prose piece for my other blog about it and then decided to create this poem ... thermoses are such fun things and filled with memories ... :)
