In This One I Am Fearless

In this one I am brave in boy boots and soot. Grandma Vera let me climb coal piles. She gave me a children’s bible she annotated beside the red Jesus parts about lost lambs. Taught me to read by flash cards in her junk shop. Mom liked me indoors but Grandma handed me hollyhock seeds and opened the door.
