Chicken Corner got an email from a reader named Darren who said that he had found an assortment of items buried in his yard in Echo Park. My yard, also, churns up bits and shards of other peoples' past. So...the things they buried in Echo Park yards include (but are not limited to): bones. big ones, tires, cigars, bullets, tap dancing shoes, sushi recipes, smaller bones, some sort of urn, and lots more tires. Shot glasses, old bottles intact, a bullet, a rusty horseshoe, a rusty whistle with cord attched, hundreds of bits of glass, a ceramic monkey. Old wounds, new wounds, sadness and happiness, the yellow and the purple. And some blue.
