Matches

My Uncle Sam flicked a match
with his thumbnail, cupped his hand
to protect the flame and lit
my Aunt Rose's cigarette


My mother wet two fingertips
and doused the match she used
to light small table candles

My Grandmother only used wood
matches to light her gas stove


PAD. Challenge. Day 1. Prompt: Matches
