Poppy Day


Who do we have to remember? My Grandfather was a sailor during the war but he died so long ago I barely remember him. This time around I’m not feeling sentimental about Rememberence Day. I didn’t even buy a stack of felt poppies as I usually do. I used to pin them all to my car’s visor and have a field of soft poppies each year.

  1. I didn’t see a single person selling poppies. But our American ones aren’t soft and felty, anyway; they’re plastic. I used to buy one from every seller I met … I don’t even remember my grandfather, who was a WWI vet, because he died before I was born. But it’s what you do.
