For Helen


When I was a child, my grandmother told me not to go into the cornfield, because the devil hid between the rows, watching for naughty boys and girls. She was trying to scare me, because behind the cornfield was a train track in which trains barreled through daily, threatening to destroy anything in their path. And if that wasn’t enough, just beyond the train tracks was the Mayo River that tempted children with its cool, appetizing water ready to engulf them in its mesmerizing currents.
