WASHING UP, pages 1 & 2 in Ballookey's
I had two moles and this one arrived a little late--so patience please. I want to take the time to do my best possible job, though I sort blobbed this up a little.
It has a story. Onondaga Lake, in Syracuse, NY, where I used to live, is one of the most polluted lakes in the country if not the world. I was there one day walking and taking pictures when a migrant worker drove up in his pick-up truck, got out, and washed up in the toxic waters of the lake. A storm was approaching--I tried to tell him that the water wasn't clean, but he didn't understand me. I was thinking the storm was a figurative one as well as a literal one.
I had some problems with this, and may try it again sometime.
I still have two more pages to go in this, but I did get Gretchen's mole mailed. Yesterday. (This one was more than two weeks late getting to me, so patience, patience!)
