Debie

everyone

thought she

would end

up with

Eddie

but even

she called

him old

farmer Ed

and she

laughed at

the train

conductors hat

he wore

 

when ever

we would

walk up

Capp road

if there

was a

dead animal

she’d punch

me in

the arm

and yell

hold your

breath

and run

 

so death

can’t get

inside.

 

Laura

grew up

in a

trailer

on a

farm her

daddy worked

 

she joined

the Army

and learned

Russian

worked as

a code

breaker

before coming

home to

attend the

local college

 

she loved

to tell

me that

the problem

with the

men in

this town

is that

there are

no men

in this

town.
