This is What Poverty Looks Like

 "Sitting in a rusty, sky blue GMC pickup on the side of Main
Street, Gavin* rested his arm through the rolled down window and took a
long drag on his Phillies cigarillo.

'This here’s a good truck,” he said, patting the side panel through the
window. “Had it for a long time now. Have to say, though, I do like Fords
better. Don’t use it for work, just use it to get here and there,
sometimes move stuff with it.” He took another drag of his cigarillo and
exhaled through his nose. “Work’s scarce around here.'

Gavin has lived in Beattyville, Kentucky his entire life, and at 74 years
old he’s the oldest of 14 siblings."
