Cashed Out

by Robert L. Smith

He named their thirteenth child Straw.
Lizzie's mouth tightened,
but she said nothing.
At the baptism, Pastor Horner
looked uncomfortable—it wasn't
a name in any book of saints.
Lizzie stood alone by the font,
her worn bonnet deepening
the shadows in her face.
Never a church-going man, Bart waited
outside, listening for something,
rolling bones in calloused hands.
