Brownie (Linda King) reads "Nemo, lost and alone" Act II-4



I always loved this poem "Nemo" my sister Linda King wrote about the poet and painter Everett Reuss who disappeared in the Utah canyonland country above Escalante years ago. His bones were only found last year buried by his murderers. I relate to this because of the disappearance of my ex husband and Raymond's father, Dean Shurtz, who has never been found after 4 years. The people in Escalante, his hometown, even have an Everett Reuss day fesitval, starting before his murdered remains were found. People from California and all over who mourned his disappearance come to the festival to see copies of his paintings and poems. Now their own native, Dean Shurtz, has been lost 4 years and they don't know how to act. This is the subject of Raymond's one man show, "Bohemian Cowboy," his father's mysterious disappearance above the Valley of Fire out of Los Vegas.
Back then I urged Linda to get out her long tiger dress with a slit up the side she could sneak into her suitcase rolled up and dance the fastest blackbottom shimmy ever seen in our parts at that time. I can still see in my mind's eye, Linda dancing that shimmy, and Red (Dale) shouting and hollering his appreciation.
I thought Doc did a good job of acting these scenes. I hope the critic Bill does not hate it too bad.

P.S. Above photo of Linda as she looked about that time in one of her tiger print outfits with her long brown hair flowing.

The Nemo poem you read in your play must have been my first draft. I was typing a much improved Nemo yesterday working on a book of selected poems. When you sell your play...I hope you get the improved version. This poem was written 1962, eight years before Bukowski. My publisher wants some of my old poems.

I have not heard the reading yet... but I am not a critic, just an analyzer to appreciate and hate is foreign to my nature... I am certainly sensing a volatile vibe in these hereabouts!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but after celebrating the return of Everet Reuss, there was an article in the newspaper just last week stating that the skeleton found by the Indian was a Navaho, not Everet Reuss after all. He is still lost in the desert. The mystery remains.
