Excerpt from People Watching (circa 1994)

My grandfather is 82
He used to be a postal worker
He smokes and drinks
And laughs hearty and loud
Lately he hasn't been feeling well
I've always thought he was a great man.

I just saw a tree growing
It was in the middle of a
railroad track that trains
don't run on anymore

Love, your grandson, Rich
