before he died and when we were born

I was almost eighteen when I started smoking
my mother was almost the same age
when she had me

and my brother can drink with the best of them
so I guess it's ironic that mom was twenty one
when she had her first son

and five years before that
around the time most of us start driving
Kathryn Jolene found out about her first baby

that was back when she was fifteen
then she had a birthday and adoption papers were drawn
and somehow she still managed to drive Jacey home
