Preparing The Body Analysis

Sometimes it only took a single word,

just a look if they had drunk enough.

A hawkbill knife would flash, sometimes a gun.

The doctor closed their eyes and it was done.



That's when they'd come for me so I would walk

until I found some men out in a yard

smoking cigarettes, looking at the ground,

the women in the house with the dead man's wife.



They'd have him laid out on a cooling board,

looking like he'd passed out drunk, but then

you saw the shirt dyed crimson with his blood,

a face as white as August cotton bolls.



We'd strip the body first. The younger girls

who hadn't known a man were curious.

They might giggle, childish as the men

who'd brought us here with their little boy games.



As soon as I could get him shaved I'd leave

and wouldn't come back until a few weeks passed.

That's when she'd need the hugs, the sugared words,

some extra help with supper and the kids.



By then she'd have an inkling, not so much

of what had happened but what was to come.

By then she'd know that she would grow old young.

By then she'd know her man was the lucky one.
