Six-year-old Jerry sneaked the last slice of bread last night. He took quite a beating when Momma informed Daddy there was none for his lunch. Jerrys lips are stuck shut with dried blood, but his bellys full. They can beat him all they want. TheMoreSix-year-old Jerry sneaked the last slice of bread last night. He took quite a beating when Momma informed Daddy there was none for his lunch. Jerrys lips are stuck shut with dried blood, but his bellys full.

They can beat him all they want. The next morning hes gone. Where did he go, the police want to know. The tenement is on fire. Flame tongues lick the walls on the fourth floor where the Turners live. Daddy is passed out drunk and Momma frantic to wake him to save him, to save them, her seven children. A hero emerges from the drunken bag of his body, finds a way to save them all. Momma was born in a chicken coop behind her grandfathers mansion in the Ozarks before he hung himself over gambling debts. Her father was the ashamed half-breed offspring of this white man and his Cherokee slave woman.

At four-years-old, she was abandoned to a Catholic orphanage along with her two older sisters. Daddy was born on a ranch in Colorado, a twin and his mothers favorite. His brother was left in an outhouse at a campground in the mountains on their fourth birthday. His momma, unhappy in her marriage, had found herself a new man who refused to take on the responsibility of two little bastards.

She kept Daddy, threw the other one away. I lived the life. Momma told me her stories. She didnt like it much that I wrote things down, life and her tales. I think she was desperate to tell it all, to give her life substance.

I promised not to breathe a word of it until she was gone. She is passed, the grass grown long over the paths she walked. I am the son alive in the mist of Mommas Rain.
