At Long Last, At Dusk
You disturbed the antelopes...
The river runs red, Tar Baby...
No it doesn't...

Screamed and cussed at lust and slush

Where's my milk and rum?
I rest in a casket; I die
- trust me - Depressed, I cried;
the sky with my
silken thumb - - -
Where am I really from?

eating pie crumbs
from the crest of this dumb
