Publication Excerpt

That year spring hadn't been able to make up her mind. It'd warm up to seventy degrees, and the winter clothes would get packed away. The old people started setting out flats of tomatoes and  marigolds in the backyard mud. Then the temperature would drop to below freezing, and all the new green leaves would die. It was on a false spring day like that when a visitor came to our house.
