Another Front Porch Conversation

Railroad trestle behind my house. People walk out to fish off of it, like it’s a handy pier. I admit to a few forays out on it myself over the last 30 years since I moved here. *photo by author

This time of year my neighbors sit on their front porches and have twilight conversations with passers-by and near-neighbors. I can barely hear their words, yet we talk back and forth until the day cools to a chill and we go inside to fix dinner or watch the evening news.
