the life of richie


Posted in is by Rich on March 31, 2009

Rich takes to reading Fences on his back porch, before his evening literature class.

Sgt. Pepper intimates himself into the scene, stretching out on the top of the porch fence, where he usually stands afternoon watch for Rich; he stretches and sunbathes in the late March early afternoon. His mouth moves open-close like he is talking to himself or some unknown spirits; he looks very happy, for a squirrel.

Rich reads while Pepper sunbathes in the midday, in the March month.

There is much stillness and expectancy, everywhere: in the ground, in the sky, in the squirrel, in the boy –– expectancy and stillness.
