Vacilando heart (Yankton, SD) --Re-edit

blues like your worn out shoes in the dead tired end of main st. town,
blues like the bar with no sign but Bud Lite alight behind the glass,
and them real hard time blues like your woman with her neck wrung and still steaming down by the James headwater this first freezing night of the fall,
behind your trailer which is coming down on itself in this prison scented with whiskey breath and empty sky.
you’re just pacing there, caged behind cheap vinyl siding,
not saying much to this land of bluffs and buffalo rolling weak kneed into an oblivion of ancestors that the sunset burns alive
 over and over til there aint even a memory of ashes.
