they found the woman yesterday. she was some ways down river. (took her almost a week to get there).
makes me think that you never know.
you just never know.
makes me hope that God doesn't think i am finished yet.
'cause i sure as hell don't feel done.
the other night, paigy comes stomping out of the bedroom in a
'do-ya-hear-me-yet' kinda way. liv is on the couch with a bloody nose. i'm sitting next to liv, keeping her company. buh is next to me, zonked out. anyways, paigy comes to buh, lays her head
on his belly, says: you sleepin' boy?
about three hours before the stars come out, mr. majestic takes a cruise. he's a white bellied all american boy. stars. stripes. (spangled all over).
god, you look like you're 21 again. will ya look at that face?
i light up when i think of riding.
every last moment that i've ever had
sits with me still.
that soulful sound of bird and bike and breaking bread.
it's an ache.
and i think of you.
