It takes you back to radio days—to when I was in second and third grade. Join me in that apartment dining-room in a big old house on Kingsley Avenue in Staten Island, NY, where my father and I shared an evening ritual of listening to “The Lone Ranger.” A few years later, in my cowgirl phase in Clark, NJ, I became Dale Evans. I still remember my red felt cowgirl hat, and my leather belt with holster in which I housed my pearl-handled cap pistol. Only problem was I didn’t have a horse.
Hope you enjoy the poem!
