32. Curled Claw

The sleeve was to large and the hand was like a claw.  The door opened and the boy knew they had been watched.  There was a man with white hair in a jacket of black barring the door.  Told them to wipe their feet.  His father told the boy get out of my way!  As he opened the door wide and he went in with his hat on his head.  There were prints on the rug and behind the stove.  The man was shouting where somewhere behind him the boy ran,  There was a carpeted stair and a glitter of a mute green of gold frames,  swift feet and he saw a lady.  

She had a velvet red gown with lace and glitter.  She did not look at his father.  But at the floor with the tracks.  She asked him to leave.  His father did not say anything,  not a word out of his mouth.  He never even glanced at her.  He stood on the rug with his brows twitching and looked the house over.  He turned and left a spec of dirt.  But he never even looked at it.  The door closed behind him.

He stopped at the gate and wiped his boots and stood on one foot. He said it is not white enough for him.  He wants to add some sweat to it.  The boy was cutting wood and within minutes he was through.  He could hear the loud voices of the women and girls.  He saw a wagon coming up the walk and knew they would be picking blackberries and picking cotton.  Part of being on a farm.  

There was a angry face staring at him and he knew he would get slapped.  But he was used to it and did not cry.  His father was shouting
