Word Has It

donnie maxwell drop't dead last night on the assembly line after he installed the interior rear windshield molding on a black plymouth fury.

none of us knew what to do, so we left him in the car, let him ride down the line, all the way, his greasy left steel-toed workboot thumping a little as he passed each work station.

word has it, once he reached the upholstery shop, ruben wilson dragged him out & jack symanski replaced him with a silver bucket seat.

high noon
the house painter's shadow
paints in the shade
