Charles Jefferson Edwards
I wasn’t even a thought yet.
Hat and beard, a community celebration and friends’ participation.
Pencils in pocket; grease on shirt — automobile work.
I see my son in those eyes, and memories in that smile.
Photo found and forwarded in email;
at age 50
relearned his work on new “computers” in 1970s
a geek complete
with pocket protector
a new skill
a new time
old, but willing.
Makes me wonder
Makes me shake my head
— why today
some people won’t learn
