"Once Upon a Time...
" And, well lost in a Snow Storm within my...
"Limited mind...
"Rhere was a town called Misery...
"And, in that town... "There was now...
"Only you and me?"
...
"Yes, we lived at best in 'Misery."
"And, we had not a nickel nor a dime?"
...
"We had not a place nor did we have a feeling of time?"
"And, we lived in a small Cottage deeply and nestled in the woods."
...
"Yes, we had a mother and a father...
(If you can understand?)
"Or, if you understood?"
...
"She would bake fresh bread over a wooden stove, while her husband would work in the woods."
"Doing what he did good...
"Chopping down the trees for the Old Mill in a town called....
''Misery.'

"And, as for me?"
"I was just a small child as much as I remember...
"That day in September....
...
"The ambered leaves in the trees...
"Would fall from the Cedar and Sycomore trees...
"I would ride my little red bike up and down the woodened walkway."
"It seem like miles back then for me...
"Back and forth, waiting for my daddy...
....
"A giant of a man standing tall at six foot six."
"My father would return from the woods his black hair and black eyes...
...
"He would pull up in his old truck and would put on the brakes."
"And, with a whoosh!"
"Black powdered dust would appear with a Swoosh!"
...
"Yes, I remember that day...
"That sad, sad, day...
In September of '22."
...
" I remember the clouds that appeared that afternoon as I waited dad that day."
"I don't remember bit they said...
"That it started to rain?"
...
"I don't remember...
"Listening inside...
"Nor the sound of pitter patter on the glass window pane?"
"But, I do remember Mom...
"With the smell of her fresh bread."
"In the house...
"Our time well spent."
...
And, I could even remember the footsteps...
"So clear...
"Of a little wood mouse...
"Who would ocassionally....
"Appear."
...
"Yes, I remember going to sleep and somehow becoming awake?"
"And, somebody placing me gently outside...
"On the pathway to the trees...
"For goodness sake because something had happened...
"Beyond our control...
"And, the townspeople said that it was a curse as I was told."
...
"For the house that was nestled so deep in those woods...
"That house with the smell of fresh bread...
"T he house I!grew up in as a small child...
"As if in some nightmarish of dream...
"Burned down during that night."
...
"And, they think it started in that wooden fireplace."
"As the fresh bread baked...
