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


the incredible sound of his voice?"



"Energized by tears,

exhausted by laughter,

we hug, we hold, we hope."
