I remember climbing to the top of a street-lamp pole and a neighborhood kid telling me that “motherfucker” is the worst curse word you can say.  I remember the scent of warm rain on scorched summer midwestern asphalt.  I remember catching fireflies in old jelly jars and hoping they would live forever.
