Hawk Season Notebook: 78



Hawk Season Notebook #78

No one expected you to live... not long enough to kindergarten finger-paint. Weak heart. Giant lung cyst. Before you were dragged away screaming to have your right lung butchered-out, you were dressed in white trousers and a wool coat, shiny leather shoes... positioned for snapshots: at a lake for swans, on a kiddy spring-horsey, sitting on rough board back steps in a garden. You were taken to see a Cisco Kid movie. You asked for a sombrero and a set of red-grip cap pistols. No sombrero and no pistols. More fake-play photographs before surgery: Animal Crackers... jelly bean bribes for half-smiles.
