Milly and Ken met in Brooklyn.
Seventeen and twenty. They met
at O’Lunney’s Irish Bar. That was that
according to Milly, in nursing school then.
Ken drove a truck. They decided early on
to have two children to move to the country
to move their jobs upstate . Milly
was thin and energetic. She wore capris
and gardened and baked.
Milly worked as a nurse. Ken drove a truck.
Their son and daughter grew up in the country. They
lived a quiet enough life. Beer and cigarettes for Ken.
He watched sports on TV and Milly always cooked.
But life is never as simple as it seems.
