fifty

the crackle of the overhead speaker,
usually mute after morning announcements,
interrupted our lesson.
someone must have thought
we should know what had happened in dallas.

what happened in dallas
that sent us streaming into the halls,
sobbing and confused,
leaning against the shoulders
of teachers and friends,
pained and numb all at once.

pained and numb all at once
that he was gone, not yet
knowing it would all change now,
the bright future diminished, and our eyes
fixed on tv screens for days after,

tv screens during the day,
usually verboten until after dinner,
while history played out in front of us
inside the little black and white box:
the bloody pink suit, the riderless horse, the casket
lying in state

Heritage Village to Celebrate Small Business Saturday All Weekend Long

Heritage Village to Celebrate Small Business Saturday All Weekend Long

 

First there was Black Friday, but who wants to stay up all night and battle unruly crowds? Then came Cyber Monday, but it’s difficult to get into the holiday spirit while sitting at a computer. 

And now there’s Small Business Saturday, when shoppers are encouraged to avoid the mall scene and support local businesses. That sounds like a winner to the wide variety of vendors that will take part in the weekend long Kris Kringle Market, Nov. 29 through Dec. 1, at Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village, located at 3755 Tonawanda Creek Road in Amherst.
