Nathan George Clark



i used to ask
which son resembles him
"oh, he was more handsome than any of his boys"
gone when i was three
polygamist
two wives
my grandma--his second
she birthed thirteen children
my father--his youngest
and his name sake

brother to Annie Clark Tanner
A Mormon Mother
son of Ezra T. Clark and Susan Leggett
one of twenty-one children
his mother the second wife

"if you can't say something nice
you'd better not say anything at all"

because of him...i live
