I wish TS would revisit this material, add a simple plot, and present it as a short novel in the tradition of Steinbeck. It's first rate writing.
Plot? How about a local boy returning from war in the Midddle East with PTSD? Understated, doesn't take much, just something to add movement and structure. Beginning: he comes home. Middle: he has issues, people take sides. End: he commits suicide, life goes back to not quite normal.
A zillion options ... something to provide narrative direction.
This material deserves revisiting and center staging.
