INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR AT A FUNERAL BY STEVE BIERSDORF

I come home on a particular Friday late afternoon and Lucky’s sitting forward on the sofa, TV off, gazing out the bay window with faraway eyes. She’s gone to a private place where her memories languish, memories that predate me, now with another link to them permanently severed. She’s economic with what she tells me, too much trouble to explain, emotion lost in translation. Like a melancholy instrumental, sunset trumpet, twilight wind section, raspy tenor sax in a smoke-filled room in the wee hours, touching her in a way it doesn't anyone else.
