Great Regulars: Homer begins his epitaph "at the gate"

where Aner Clute refused to kiss him goodnight after he had taken her to "the skating rink or the revival." She offered him only a "distant clasp of the hand," saying that they would have to "be engaged" before she would allow him to kiss her. This revelation about Aner confirms her disingenuous portrayal of her own behavior and that it comports with deceit of many of the other Spoon River characters.
