What you will find here

This is a place to examine plans filled with hope; plans which promise a refuge from chaos; plans which will shape our futures. Veterans with and without PTSD, Pentecostal Presbyterians, Adjudicated Youth, and Artists-Musicians-Writers: I write what I know. ~~~ Evelyn

Lincoln Logs

by Evelyn Rainey

From a photo by Dennis Allen

Lincoln Logs

Ninety degree angles

Logs can only fit just so

Walls are a standard width

A standard depth

A standard length

They can only be as high as you have logs to build them

There’s no softness allowed

No curves

No gingerbread

No gables, turrets, bay windows

This was the kit he was given

As a child

To build his home

His life

His expectations

So he planted calico flowers in the back yard
