We found the trampoline for free on craigslist.
If it were listed in the area we’d moved from, it would have been gone in a flash. But Franklin, Kentucky is a small town and the Craigslist is slow, and the free trampoline was held for us until Jeremy could come back into town and help me get it.
I look out the window because I daren’t interrupt–inside the net is a complete world contained, the world of three boys–Kransmen we call them, tongue-in-cheek–their natural and artificial hierarchy, their roles chosen for now because it must be this way. It will not always be this way.
