Definitions will spawn in a new window (Wordnet):

we all had small lockers in the back of the factory

had two photographs
taped to the back
of his door.
his girls,
twelve and
he went to the oldests
softball practice
every wednesday.
he told me
if they happened to be
in a public place
at the same time,
it was ok
that she walk out
to his lawn-chair
and give him a hug.
but his wife
up there in the stands
with her boyfriend
and that lawyer's
phony restraining order;
the bitch
wouldn't let his
little sarah
come down.
