The first purple wisteriaI recall from boyhood hungon a wire outside the windowsof the breakfast room next doorat the home of Steve Pisaris.I loved his tall, skinny daughter,or so I thought, and I would waitbeside the back door, prostrate,begging to be taken in. Perhapsit was only the flowers of springwith their sickening perfumesthat had infected me. When Steveand Sophie and the three childrenpacked up and made the move west,I went on spring after spring,leaden with desire, half-asleep,praying to die. Now I knowthose prayers were answered.That boy died, the brick housesdeepened and darkened with rain,age, use, and finally closedtheir eyes and dreamed the sleepof California. I learned thisonly today. Wakened earlyin an empty house not latelybattered by storms, I lookedfor nothing. On the surfaceof the rain barrel, the paled,shredded blossoms floated.
