aunt bea
for as long
as i can remember
had these
little superstitions
something about
a broom
and your feet
i just can’t recall
all the details
right now
she persisted
with her beliefs
in a number
of those types
of things
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
