THE LEGEND OF BILLY BEAD
Love was lost and one heart grew sour,
Due to one groom’s roving eye.
He should’ve been wise, swallowed his pride,
And apologized to his bride.
Because she lost her mind, then he lost his life,
There was no second dance.
His bride waved her hand and said the words;
He never stood a chance.
Now when the moon is full and the ocean mourns
And the owl flies in the sky,
Pain and grief fill the lonely church
Where Billy Bead does lie.

Excerpt: The Sacrifices We Make by Saul Tanpepper
The Man had already cheated Death once this morning, so when he turned away from the radiant face of his wife and stepped off the porch and into the busy-bright flow of the September day, the crisp, loud clack of the hard rubber soles of his shoes on the sidewalk sounded to him like an affirmation of life and living and all things that are vibrant. The breathless air was crisp and clear. He held his gaze determinedly forward, in front of himself. A sort of a smile touched the corners of his face. Today will be different, he assured himself, even though he knew it wouldn’t be. Before he had even reached the front sidewalk, his footsteps sounded to him like the ceaseless ticking of a clock.
