The Day She Figured Out Her Camera's Timer

the day she figured out her camera's timer

The neighbors still rave about
how she shook her maracas.

How she flung peas into the trees.
Then her blue bra over the roof.

She still had not quite mastered
her Kodak’s indoor light settings…

but, by golly — Thanksgiving 2011,
the day she learned which camera
button to press, and how to run like
heck into position – sweet potatoes
everywhere did a happy fandango.
