a walk along the block

character from diana rowlands “white trash zombie” paperback novel series



nothing to say


her hand lifted in a farewell salute

in front of her ailing belly

i automatically waved back

she turned around & walked away

down the block

i watched her recede

further & further

& further

until big town burped & farted

i knew in my sad old bones

i would never see her again
