Coming Soon. & On rats. From Daddy Wolf. From James Purdy.
"I don't object to animals, see. If it had been Mama Bird, say, which had come out of the hole, I would have had a start, too, as Mama Bird is seldom about and around at that hour, not to mention it not nesting in a linoleum hole, but I think i feel the way I do just because you think of rats along with neglect and lonsomeness and not having nobody near or around you"
