    vibrating jangling phone but this would only force his tormentor to persist until he picked up One evening the last of November with the prospect of Christmas alone with only the rats and a crocked body for company he decided to engage his mystery assailant On cue just before midnight the hateful screen lit up You just don t get the message do ya No response A new innovation over the past few calls had been the faint sound of childish tweetings or burblings like a toddler trying to baby talk This absurd noise came at Conrad now mixed with the usual street sounds They always phoned from outdoors If you call me again I m going straight to the police Jesus Christ I should have done it days ago And then tremblingly on a guess That s not Zoe is it He didn t think it was For some reason he had an intuition that the caller was male completely groundless as they had never spoken a word But the thought that is was his step daughter gave him a strange measure of comfort Zoe if that s you tell your mum to call me He felt as if he were talking into an immense silence or darkness like a nineteenth century explorer shouting into an Alpine ravine Okay that s it One more call and it s the cops and he hurled the phone across the room Rising to pick it up after a minute his put the phone to his ear to find the prankster was still on the line Carefully closing the mobile he went to fetch another bottle of red from the kitchen eye lids and arms spasmodically twitching more angry than he d ever been in his life December came and with it the depressing carnival pre amble to Christmas On pavements sheeted with ice the moon still in the sky like a silver florin he would shiver his way to work The calls the rats the damaged body where all too much after the failure of his relationship He longed for sunshine or for some interior sun to defrost the layers of pain but none broke through The cops had predictably told him they couldn t help Only if the caller made themselves known and became classified as a stalker could they get involved Finally on Christmas Eve he decided to play his tormentor at their own game He would stay on the line until they had had enough He had all the time in the world after all Midnight The lit screen Already gone on two bottles of cheap Shiraz a third open in front of him Conrad felt ready to confront the unknown Hello you Nothing Happy Christmas scumbag The baby noises Infuriating Even more so as he was certain they were being put on by a man You don t give up do ya An ambulance in the background And wind noises as if the caller were high up I

  • Family: On a Good Day
    it was for me to help my students What geography teacher needs to know that much about counselling I want to hug her but I can t remember the last time I have Two more blocks I say I think the church is two more blocks that way I don t actually know where the chapel is We re from three towns over But they all look the same a few blocks of old two story brick buildings sharing walls I see a steeple and women dressed in white walking in that direction I m following them Past the tracks at the corner there s a booth with vegetables and big gourds plagued with knobby growths Medical metaphors surface from the doctor s office I can t shake the images he created or Mom and Dad s faces looking at me as though it were my body and not his Maybe they have garlic I say Mom turns her head Sees what I see She frowns and shakes her head we keep walking The chapel is a maze of freestanding display boards Jagged cut outs from newspapers turned yellow are pinned to a few of them They re all history about the town the church and the festival Most of the articles are about former prominent citizens The whole town seems to be founded by gangsters turned honest Middle aged faces with obits citing mysterious circumstances outnumber the wrinkled faces that died of natural causes or actual medical conditions Mom walks off looking at statues of saints but the board has my attention One a mayor was killed when his car caught fire driving down the highway It was prohibition era but there wasn t any mention of his cargo at the time I imagine he was transporting jugs or casks of volatile liquid smoker too I bet Dad would have said the man was a ticking time bomb Same thing Dad had called himself I search for Mom over my shoulder she s nearby so I shuffle around to the other side of the board There s a white map of the U S with crisscrossing red lines They re not highways or interstates none of them have numbers They re train tracks I can tell because they begin as a cluster in the east and reach west across the map spreading further apart choking the other states I think of x rays and MRIs tracking Dad s progress but in the wrong direction Next to the map are photographs dog eared and stained of three similar looking men Next to each portrait is a clipping The first says Robert Kline 19 killed by train while walking home It says he d been drinking The next says George Kline 25 Car Stalled on Tracks The last portrait Michael Kline is accompanied by a whole newspaper spread The headline reads Train Kills Three Brothers The photos show multiple boxcars toppled on the side of the tracks The engine went through
