MDCCCXCVII

 

1897

MDCCCXCVII

In my dream I was house-hunting 

        first Boston Marathon 

       15 men, ten finish: John McDermott wins 

I settled on a hotel in between 

       Klondike Gold Rush begins July 17 

but the shower light was loose 

       Jack London among them 

so I used the steam button on the iron to shower:  good backup for a camper, I noted

        Bayer markets aspirin 

my late mother appeared with a van, clean, with side-facing seats and cargo hold

     yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus 

I sent her for my purple shampoo and conditioner I had left behind
