(Another posibility for Artday Monday's weekly theme of "supernatural".
This is an excerpt from yet another endeavor. It started as a statement told to me by a small child years ago (he graduates from high school this year.) I didn't know what to do with it until my niece died. Then the story and images just seemed to fall onto the pages. That was three years ago...I guess I'd better stop sitting on this one and get it published.)
...Each pulled out a list.
Each checking it twice.
Each saying a prayer
for the naughty and nice.
...They talked about the old names
and names that are new.
Discussing each one...
