Crittie picked up a lard bucket and packed inside it two hoe cakes, two pieces of pork, two sweet potatoes, and a glob of blackberry jelly. Then she tied a piece of cloth over the top of the bucket to keep the flies out. Next she poured a Mason jar nearly full of sweet milk. She picked up the bucket and the jar, closed the front door of the shotgun house, shooed the chickens off the front porch, and set out in a quick pace toward the bottom. Crittie had been fixing lunch for herself and her daddy ever since her mother died.

SHATTERED DREAMS

The smell of something cooking in the oven-gone
The sound of children laughing-gone
The front porch rockers-gone
The whispers of love-gone
The dreams of a lifetime-gone

All over the Quarter this morning are posters bearing various pictures of Nicholas Cage under this caption:
WEALTH IS A GHETTO
FAME IS A CURSE
His recent arrest for arguing publicly with his wife about where their rental house was located in the Quarter brought support from locals who have also had too much to drink and forgotten where they live.
