A Song in the Manner of Flannery O'Connor.

 Snow on the mountain--water in the valley: you beat a mule and it
works hard, Honey.
 Have a cigarette?
Where is the guidepost? Written on your hand: you point places with it
and everyone understands.
 Like to dance, Honey?
Country folks used to talk to us like this. Now they're wiser than
the rest of us.
 So long. Sucker.
