a confederate july ….

In the night the traffic passes near by my window as I lie close to sleeping .Loud cars full of teen age boys jolt me back from the brink, a bellowing hound apparently from the back of a truck passes rapidly. Sunday morning and between the  guys on motorcycles and  the calling of the blue jays, the church bells play. A young boy pushes his little brother in a modern version of a stroller, a plastic car with hollow wheels that echo up and down the street announcing his progress. I wait to see him. Today he wears headphones, bobbing his head, drumming on the handle of the pram, he sings out ” school’s out for -ever”. I have slipped back in time . People sit on porches, couples stroll in the evening, calling out greetings to neighbours, their comments on the weather filter down to me. The smells of boxwood, honeysuckle and milkweed combine today as summer is in full force here.,small town America, a place time has passed by .
