LARGEST BLACK BEAR TRACKS ON RECORD
REWARD FOR KILL OR CAPTURE OF GREAT APPALACHIAN BEAR
There was still the soundairy, like a long breath, only
not that. I followed it until I came to an old phonograph
with a record spinning on the turntable, but the needle was
at the end, making only that rhythmic whispering sound.
There was a collection of record albums, all neatly placed
on a shelf. I was about to see which record had been playing
when I heard a voice from a back corner of the room.
"They don't know where he's buried."
I spun around, gripping the towel about my shoulders. It was Early Auden.
