cold   At my father's house circa 1984. It is freezing outside, and there are footprints of ice in the lawn. between this yard and the neighbor's yard there is a single gas burner upon which a large black pot full of water sits and boils. Steam rises in the air.

I can see in the neighbor's window. A fat man wearing boxers and an undershirt stands in front of the television, one hand on his hip. he turns to look at me.I turn away.

Something about moving and cockroaches and marc o. A car in the street outside spins out. (2002-07-01)
