Dialing for eternal suffering

My baby-sitter

was a born again Christian,

and a old movie fan.

I remember she’d let us

stay up late watching the

old, black & white movies

on the UHF channels.

And some-times, she’d

become reflective about

 the shadows

moving across the screen,

say things like,

“See all those people?

They’re all burning in hell.”
