Hiatus Continues

Tenacity is in the midst of decay. The seafood shack is just a few miles from the central business district of a small town. Most of the buildings have an underlying weariness, while a few are hanging on like aging burlesque dancers. There is a saucy little upstart in the mix. The homes have settled into their surroundings, maintained as well as their owners can afford.

      Singin’ it for ya, Judith-
      Educated in a small town
      Taught to fear Jesus in a small town
      Used to daydream in that small town
      Another born romantic that’s me

  3. Even with fresh make-up, new stockings and a shot of B12, the ladies can’t dance anymore. The music has faded away. The band has left the hall.

    I used to live in Maine – my town was just like that. I always loved the signs that proclaimed random combinations of items for sale such as “Fiddleheads, Live Bait, Ice Cream, Blueberries.” The blueberries and live bait were right in the same refrigerator. There’s also that tendency towards the overuse of quotation marks, like: V’s “Pizza Two.” I miss that slice of Americana.
