Church Supper, New England
The fiddles there are three are badly out of tune, and the thumping of the bass is as heavy and portentous as the summons of the Reaper himself. Stout Yankees surround me as I sit, alone, at the end of a table, as out of place as that dark imp at Sleeping Beautys christening.
Farmers, truckers, carpenters all their ladies bulging in stretch pants and home-knitted, loud-yarned sweaters sit gossiping between great mouthfuls of corned beef and cabbage, boiled red potatoes and carrots as large as any dildo on display in a toy shop.
I know these folk. Theyre shrewd and theyre earthy but at the same time theyre prudish and I hear no jokes about carrots as I eavesdrop, my nose in my journal, on their homespun conversations.
I have not worn my red shoes to this church supper, for all New Englanders know that red shoes are the mark of a witch, and for all their fumbling pretensions to the progress of the world these rockribbed worthies would never suffer a witch to live. 2013 RC deWinter
