What is the typical American life?
HOW MANY SEASONS … poetry and poem by Rita Mosiman http://www.plaintalkbm.com/how-many-seasons/
Early spring. Lacy leaves. Nesting bird choruses. Rebirth. As I meander through the neighborhood on my walk, I hear sudden pounding of staple guns doing a quick repair and meet children going home from school, remembering the days I did that (in another life?!). I wonder what is going on in the homes I pass. Many stand empty during the day. Some have their guard dogs fussing at the fence. I think about the typical American life now. What is the typical American life? Where is middle America? Does it exist anymore?
