Disconnect

connected

Born to a mother in shock and mourning

from the loss of her husband

not my father,

a cold and distant,

if well-intentioned

New Englander.

A meal ticket

for two fatherless children

my sisters.

Raised in Salt Lake City

a non-Mormon

an introvert

a physically active child

in a world of quiet girls,

yet a garrulous mother

and sisters.

Where does she fit?

What place, her place, where?

A business professor who substituted Shakespeare for

Business Writing

the only business course in the economics curriculum.

Misfit.
