This week’s prompt at Chimera 66 is the word, “tambourine.”

He play in a gypsy ban’.

Papaw say he ‘no damn good’ an’

fo’ me t’ steer clear.

I din’t.

He was a beauteous man—

De blackest eyes you evuh seen!

an’ when he smile,

Lawd, when he smile!

Dey sparkle at me like silvuh dimondz.

He die—

but not b’fo

Givin’ me my treasures:

Dat tambourine yonder…

An’ you!

“Now. What else on yo’ mind?”
