Across the Prospect to Greenwood
Heading south with the dog, crossing the expressway's a done deal, and more than likely, you'll find yourself at one edge or other of the cemetery's borders.
On the other side of the bridge, at the corner of Tenth & 20th, I lifted my pocket camera to take a picture of a building I'd seen in a tax photo, where a business, Aunt Annie's Farm, once operated. Shot taken, a squirrel appeared, the dog lunged, and the camera made a sickening arc, up, up in the air before hitting the sidewalk with a sharp crack.
The shutter strains to open, and occasionally makes it, but mostly shakes furiously. The handful of images that manage to appear are grainy blurs . It's a goner!
