Sample text

Still I check the mail, early afternoon heading toward the street looking for sign fresh tracks in the sand under the box, scalloped tire marks tying neighbor to neighbor, all flags down up to the cul-de-sac.  And whatever is in there now is all there will be today.  A man from one of the even numbers across the street is coming, breathing hard, tied to his daughter with rope around his middle.  We're all a little embarrassed.  I'm sorry, I'm very sorry. She picks up her board, heads home shaken and unhurt.

Waiting.  Wait 20 minutes.  Maybe not everything, but enough.  Might as well enjoy the night. Stare, not at the starsthey'll make you blind for when you look back down to earthstare at the darkest thing far off that you can find.  Teeth and claws over your bed. You can even mount the rabbit at his feet.  But you know what? There's better chance there won't be nothing there.  But don't bet your savings on it. Page 50 All that waiting and listening, might be nothing more than a cold and stove-up rabbit bled to death.

Strange as if his place were all too neat. Something else Dad told us one by one at different times, mostly when one of us would help him in the yard or when we found him, late nights, downstairs in the kitchen taking a bourbon to help him get some sleep: Jimmy had not lived alone out there.  Or had slipped into our midst.  And we did, naming first the homely and alone, and then, in time we all suspected everyone in some way or another. He hadn't lived alone; she walked among us about this we felt better, and worse.
