Wilma Trashed My Mother’s House by Jill Bronfman

No comments

The hurricane that danced around my mother’s house wore the exasperated expression of a cartoon character. The Halloween party had to be cancelled because the fake cobwebs were soaked, and the roof tiles were all over the lawn. Until the next time, I toast Wilma, as she backs away. Wilma tells us that next time we will find out her real name. I won’t wear the costume of that witch again. She says you will see me rise in concentric circles around your mother’s house, and you will run inside like she can protect you.
