Rubber Houses by Ellen Yeomans

Rubber Houses - Ellen Yeomans

I have a hard time getting into the novels told in verse, but I didn't with this one. (this one might be called free verse)

Yeomans keeps the verse short, but it it doesn't mean it lacks on telling the story with detail.

 

"Numb was a dear, sweet friend,

a warm soft bed,

a place to rest

the last of me."

 

"What if I lose the dirty details, the messy

memories,

the incredible sound of his voice?"

 

 

"Energized by tears,

exhausted by laughter,

we hug, we hold, we hope."
