"Be back at eight. What you got in there?"
"Junk. Presents from home, dirty laundry.... "
"We got a laundry here."

And I went out and took the subway down to Brooklyn with all my gear, whipped out a few dollars from the suitcase, said goodbye to Uncle Nick saying I was going back to Baker Field, walked down the hot September streets of Brooklyn hearing Franklin Delano Roosevelt's speech about "I Hate War" coming out of every barbershop in Brooklyn, took the subway to the 8th Avenue Greyhound bus station, and bought a ticket to the South.
I wanted to see the Southland and start my career as an American careener.
