aunt ruby

so they couldn't rouse her on the phone the other night and sent the cops over, who found her sitting there stone cold dead on her sofa in front of the teevee---she was 90 with her husband dead 20 yrs and their only son, my oldest cousin, warner, dead two or three years----that's her on the far left with the siblings at neel's gap or somewheres in the early 1930s---i always kinda liked her until mother told me or rather insinuated that ruby had ragged her about me being queer back when they were still young enough to be fighting and bitching with each other---somehow that made me feel a little different--- but tomorrow i gotta go be a pallbearer, or cart roller, which is what it amounts to---happy monday coming right up
