Ice Formed on the Insides


           In it's early days it was heated by a wood-burning pot-bellied stove, and ice formed on the insides of the windows. One night a kid from the street barged in, whacked a customer in the front booth with a baseball bat, and ran out again. When a roomer who lived upstairs died, his body was discovered when maggots started to drop through the ceiling. A man nobody knew was shot dead one night out in back. From the day it opened on December 30, 1966 until the day i stopped drinking in 1979, i drank there more or less every night when i was in town.

One day, everything will be like before again. And it is not like it.
