well i talked to him at the corner today
he said what about her
i asked what about her?
she sells tobacco down in cottondale now
cottondale tobacco
said she was too weak willed to work again with him
said this one has got her under his grips
her and their kids
says he's afraid of her around all these guys
i smiled thinking her boyfriend's worried about me
because i know i aint no worry to tara
old boy can keep his kids and his funny little motorcycle
we seen each other at the grocery store and he aint say shit
im gonna crank up my goddamn lightnin
pay her a visit
tell her im bout tired
of this business
come on home with me girl
i'll just love you
and every little fucking bit of that
smile that hung underneath
those cheap eyeglasses
dont care if you aint got
no boobies or no asses
i'll just love you
that's all i'll do

its somewhere between
the swagger of those in the alley
and the swoon of them underneath the porch
oh such an intriguing thing
sending volts to the bolts
in my rubberneck
i watch and i watch
and i guess and you guess
and the answers lay somewhere between
my head and her dress
my eyes and her legs
my words and her breath
i know you've been chewed up
but i'll eat all that that's left

a prayer

"god bless this wine
god bless these tracks
and god bless things
that never come back"
