Catching On Fire 

©2002 Andrew Calhoun, recorded on Tiger Tattoo.

Long Branch, New Jersey 
1963 
I'm heating milk for hot cocoa 
For my sister and me 

Fire on my shirtsleeve 
Flames on my belly 
Never before had 
Such shrieking come from me 

Leaping down three flights 
Slapping the flames out 
Never before had 
Dad hit me like that 

A tube of burn ointment 
Our friend Robby was there too 
His eyes looking on me 
Were never so blue
