In Honor of Shakespeare’s First Folio

Visiting the Middlebury College Museum 

 

Inside the box, under glass,

the air ‘s 1623 again. The paper

Our first two days in Northern California were filled with palm trees, rainbows, and loving grandparents. On the morning of the third day – the day we would leave the comfort of the grandparents’ house and move into our rental house in Berkeley – I fell down the stairs.

As Mick Jagger said (or was it Richard Nixon?): “The honeymoon don’t last forever, kid.”

I won’t cast one vote for a camel-
