Who Are You Calling to Make Me Whole

By Donald Hubbard

Feral animals avoid the undersides of porches in summer. During winter, certainly they venture there, because the boards overhead protect them from snow and rain as they try to burrow through masonry and into homes, but not summers. Carpenter ants excepted, they enjoy chewing away at wet and rotted wood, a poor name given to them, they certainly do not appreciate the irony. Otherwise, it is too hot and dark to want to play hide and go seek under a porch or explore there. Except one barely breathing young woman lies there. Sylvia Plath is minutes away from being discovered.
