(inspired by Joe Brainard’s book-length poem I Remember)

I remember when we ate black-eyed peas for good luck

but then we had bad luck because our dog died

I remember when it got so cold we had to wear mittens and

then the next week we wore flip flops because it was 75 degrees

I remember going to a Martin Luther King, Jr. parade and then not

being able to remember where we parked our car

I  remember getting poison ivy, which I thought would be dead in


I remember this month the best because it’s my birthday and

my mom lets me pick what kind of cake I want
