A Political Tale

Jeanne was our last hurricane that fall. Some said

the section hardest hit was the Republican part of Florida. “At least

it’s warm here,” is something my ex would say when she was

afraid I would leave her.

I left my ex and moved into the Lucky Boy Motel.

I rented two units—7 & 8—with 2 tiny kitchens & 2 tiny baths.

My appliances were replicas of themselves, like our 2 party system,

Rita & Katrina, loss and the love that spawned it.
