This must've been an instant point and shoot w timer and is the final I'll post from the American Farmhouses series, and eerie image in how it captured us--the only photo that does so--not smiling for all the pictures. "My mother//was a year older than I am now/when we left Nebraska for good. She left/w four kids, a husband, and a dog. Little else.//Imagine carrying all that weight.//Say my mother moved back to CA/in 1982. Say she did at any point. Do you see//all that would have erased?"
