Small Town Holiday
My hands were freezing as I walked. I held on the lighter in my jacket pocket for dear life, giving it a flick every two steps I took for that half-a-second of warmth. The clouds held heavy and dark. I walked past the old little league field that was covered in snow. The back cage towering out of the ground and it looked like seeds grew metal. Man, and Earth, rich and poor, metal and dirt. These are the things I used to think about walking to go dig through the butt cans behind the local Weis grocery store looking for half smoked cigarettes. If I was lucky, I would find a half a pack somebody left on the bench amidst getting called back in to register 5 for a sudden run on condensed milk. I didn’t know what day it was, just that it was sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I didn’t buy anybody presents that year, and for the past few holidays I don’t recall getting my mother anything, I guess I didn’t think about it and I always felt guilty. I just thought about walking over to my dad’s jobsite the next morning making up some reason why I couldn’t see him for Christmas and maybe he would give me a check for twenty-five or fifty bucks. He still worked hanging dry wall at the new medical center. Working under a union contract, was a lucky thing to have back then. I lived up in coal country for a while and all the union jobs flushed out of the small towns with the mines. The towns never recovered.
