Arnold, Maryland, USA
Not Giving a Fig
Her yard filled with succulence, a ladder leans against a fig tree. She asks her grown son
to pick us a bag as she pins my husband's trousers. No, he says, they can pick the damn things themselves and pay for them too.
Mortified, the mother tries to fight back tears. Just another day of taking in alterations to support a good-for-nothing habit.
