Chapter Fifty-Thress
Barn Boards

The day is sunless,

only grey paints the sky.

The wind has picked up

a chilling edge to its knife.

Clothed in an insulated woollen jacket,

and jeans worn through at the knee,

Joseph Tiller heads to the barn

with a ladder in hand.

A barn board has been pushed out

and must be replaced,

before the snow predicted

musters up a storm.

He climbs to the milk shed’s roof,

its structure adhered to the barn,

with tools and fresh boards in hand

to patch the gaping cavity

left by wind’s twirling punch the day before.

His hands and knees throb with arthritic pain
