Once upon a time

West Putnam was

a brand new building

of brick and blue

carnival cakewalks

confetti on the floor

Mr. Williams waltzing

Mrs. Collins at the keys

Miss Mary, Mrs. Liggett


(lunches like food from your

grandma’s house-

they loved us like that).

Once upon a time

was West Putnam

who stands still

with empty halls

ceilings on the floor

Milk carton caskets

with turtle bones

buried at playground’s edge.

Once upon a time

West Putnam

was/is/was always



Christine and Annie (who suggested this week’s theme) take on Once Upon A Time.
