An English In Kentucky


















 Thursday December 11th 2014 Tim Candler


    A Derailment as a title hardly covers it. Then there's the question, "Is it actually a derailment?"  And here I can't say for certain without starting to itch. Maybe there's something on the keyboard, or even the keyboard itself, that causes this itching. Yet when I look beyond for others in my predicament there's an understanding that A Derailment might indeed be the title.

     There's a sort of sweetness, a sort of earnest searching for the equation, and it's all properly wrapped looking to be cooed at. It's kind of like going to the fancy dress ball in shorts, then sleeping on the park bench and you're never quite certain when the night will end. And here I've never been to a fancy dress ball, but I have slept on park benches.
