POETIC PROSE: Why The Widow Wears Black… Entry 2, Chapter 1
It’s no secret that I am… was… a widow.
This is a thrust story of edgy survival, desperation, wit and humor.
An irreverant look at the death of a husband… my husband… my late husband.
This was then… Real life. Real death.
In Why The Widow Wears Black, my Award-Winning Book, will be posted in it’s entirety. This book is dedicated to my children… and their survival… And, to Jim, my new husband. Without their support this book would not have been written.

This is a True Life Story.
So, it goes like this . . .
Entry 2, Chapter 1
I turn the wheel. Tires grind and scrape. Their swivel serves willful on the spot.
Agonizing sounds a car makes when turning without the ease of moving forward.
Turning in position.
Abrupt and insistent.
But, because I turn the wheel, they twist. They have no choice.
So, they have to turn. Grinding against the friction of the still asphalt.
Abraded by the grit of the road. Roughened by the road ahead.
The road ahead…
My foot not ready.
It hovers still.
My jerky movements… scared that I cannot trust them.
I am unsure.
The car pulls forward… as if on its own.
Like the steering wheel and the axle, it turns and has no choice.
We also turn, and have no choice.
Now… we have no choice.
What we’ll turn into . . . this road of exits and accidents, breakdowns and toes tagged by innocent bystanders.
This carpool’s forward.
We stop at red lights. Green, we go.
Emotions burning a hole deep into our family latter.
Nature failed us.
The speed limit is unimportant. An unknown.
And, so we are going, though we do not want to go.
And, so he went, though he did not want to go.
… until next time.
