Write with words and new phrases build a sentence: “we” as in “we had come to many indecisions.” Now write: “meaning” “we” “mother” “father” “laughter” “a dark basement.” Ma’am may I? We didn’t understand the meaning of our parents’ laughter in the dark basement. Ma’am may I? Our father has said the dark cellar is like our mother. Ma’am may I? Our mother always says: Don’t be afraid fear is the brother of death and death can come from contaminated greens and from the throat of our brother’s gun. Then they laugh and then laughter again drowns. And we don’t understand the meaning of this laughter. We’re always afraid and continue to pray for death’s foot not to reach our dark basement.
