Vacation

We used to rent a chalet in the Vermont hills. If luck was with us, leaf season would be in full swing and the vista would be a patchwork of colors—red, brown, green, yellow, orange. But inside the little house it would always be blue; he would drink and smoke from the moment we got there until he blearily helped me carry the bags to the car.

shrouded bird
never seeing daylight
stays silent
