dcmarti1 Posted June 29, 2014 Share Posted June 29, 2014 Between worry and demandReading Exile and the Kingdom in the Republic of Texas.....Between worry and demand there isyour neighbor drug dealer, the onewho is a Neo-Con, the onewho rails against Obama(for the obvious reason)and Commie health care,but who coos at the babies of his clients.Between worry and demand there isyour illegal in-law cottagewhich, at least, has a toilet,but pales in its mimicryof the Capitol pied-a-terreor the two bedroom flat with redwalls and European roommates.Between worry and demand there isthe persistent Bermuda grass,the improperly sloped back yard,and the curious police who stopto watch you, the known liberal nutwho believes in global warming,use your Scott's push-reel mower.Between worry and demand there isthe consolation of laundry,the giant sized container of Sundetergent for 120 loads,the giant size box of dryer sheets,and the two laundry baskets:one dirty, one clean.Between worry and demand there isthe working-class luxuryof Dollar Tree lotions, Fleurs d'Irisand Vanille Sucre Brun,and their sister shower gelswhich must be used in secretso they won't know you're a fairy.Outside of worry and demand there isonly exile, never a kingdom.
