The 4 of Us

Mark Christopher

My most recent episode begins with a chainsaw fight.

Father, upon partaking in multiple whiskey wedge

cocktails of the single malt variety, concludes the moment

has arrived to replace the lighting in our home’s

common areas (regardless of whether or not their filaments

continue carrying forth life), and I am directed

to the nearest hardware store for the purchase of fresh

bulbs—a minor task he and mother feel I’m capable of

performing without the requisite supervision.

Green Line South. Twenty-five minutes round-trip.

Two bus tokens and a folded piece of yellow paper

from my pocket.

Father’s calligraphy:

Seven packs of bulbs.

Three bulbs per pack.
