_____________________________________________________________________

He really hates the sight of lace.

Lace reminds him of the house in Landsberg and rich Nazi’s wives.

Lace reminds him of runners on tables in his parent’s home back in New Jersey.

Lace reminds him of Kathy’s veil at their wedding, the one handed down to her from her grandmother.

Lace reminds him of his daughter’s baptismal gown.

He’ll never forget those dead men in Landsberg who never see their daughters and wives dance in lace.

He drinks trying to forget. He drinks so he can be numb to the sight of lace.

Yes, he fucking hates lace.
