APRIL PROMPT #7
something that is easy for others
but almost if not totally impossible for you
NO NEED TO WRITE IT DOWN
~for John Pratt
Take the first left after the traffic light,
head south about half a mile. The road will
kind of divide in three. Ignore the drive-
ways on the right, and bear right. There’s a jog
heading east right after you round the first
easy corner–not the sharp corner with
the yellow sign. There’s mountains to the west
and a little gap in the hills on the
east. Head for that gap, but before you get
there, you’ll see an apple orchard–or a
Christmas tree farm–a commercial tree place
of some kind. Turn left onto what looks like
a little farm road. It isn’t, really,
it’s a town road, but it isn’t marked, or
at least it wasn’t last week. They steal the
sign sometimes, so it usually isn’t
there. If it’s there, I think it’s Orchard Road,
or something like that. Or somebody’s name.
Wilson Road, or Sunderland, or something.
Three or four miles down that road, it will fork.
There are a bunch of little driveways, but
the main road is pretty obvious. Take
the right fork. You should see a cemetery
on the left. I’m pretty sure on the left
since you’re coming from that direction. We’re
the fourth–no, fifth, there’s some new houses–house
on the north after the cemetery.
You can’t miss it.
