tricube plus memory

Nebraska Red

Buzz in air
Fun event
Play to win

Thick traffic
Sea of red
Roaring crowd

Fans transfixed
Solid pride
Corn Huskers          

I remember
my sister and I
leaving home
in a U-Haul van.
Dad gave us jumper cables,
probably realizing
what kind of car
we’d be driving
through Nebraska winters.
He pointed to the red clip.
“Remember, Go Big Red is positive.”
That’s when Nebraska enthusiasm
began to breath in my soul.
I didn’t even like football.
