remodelling…

digital decoupage

aunt bea
for as long
as i can remember
had these
little superstitions
like
something about
a broom
and your feet
i just can’t recall
all the details
right now
but
she persisted
with her beliefs
in a number
of those types
of things
so
i asked
how she could
continue to believe
in such things
given the advances
in medicine
she looked me
square in the eye
and said
witch doctors
have traded in
their feathers
for white coats

  1. I would love to have a book of Aunt Bea’s pearls of piss and vinegar. Can I say that? I mean it only in the best way. I love Aunt Bea’s everything! She rocks.
    However, I may be a person who would still put stock in older styles of medicine and healing, but I’m not sure that’s the same as what you mean by “witch doctor.” I’ll have to look that one up.
