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.
