Ted: Dusty Noon

On State Road 441, a few miles south of Enterprise, Lee looked for the overgrown red-clay road.

He hadn't been home in more than twenty years, so wasn't rightly sure of the landmarks. He almost walked past his turn; it was much smaller than he thought it should have been.

"Who dat?" called his mother from under the dubious shade of the rusted tin roof.

"It's me, Momma. Lee."

"You see de wurl like you wanted?"


"Wha chu tink about it?"

"Beats this place all to hell."

"Better git back to it. den."

"Yes'm" he said, and turned around.
