The Widow’s Walk

“I am here to say that it’s possible to call your stroke-injured husband a cocksucker and a pricky sonofabitch, while he screams that you’re a lousy manager and lazy to boot. Sort of like the way I call God a mean motherfucker, when he’s being that way.” Tell it, Ashley Walker.

No Matter Which Road I Take, I’m Still Going Home

“It’s on the drive home that she hopes she will never feel like this again. Ever. Alone in the black drizzling night, all prayers abandoned, all passions put on a high, high shelf. Out of sight, out of reach.” Part 16 of Ashley Walker‘s memoir-in-progress, Gorked.

Ashley Walker does.

Rats

“Wound up, me and the rat, driving over to White Rock Lake, a lake that’s supposedly chock full of dead drug dealers, and let it run off by the shoreline. Not exactly a Free-Willy moment, but the best choice I could think of.” Ashley Walker has since abandoned her catch-and-release policy.
