Memories of an Accident in 1910
This Poem about my great-grandmother Laura Bowers is an experimental poem, in which the left side represents her spoken voice, and the right side represents the voice in her mind. It is written in the first person point of view about an accident in which my mother was scalded. In this I attempted to show some of the attitudes of family interactions, and of course in the end, it is a fictional interpretation of events told to me by my mother, Ava Valencourt Babcock.
