You’re Gonna Want To Drive When You Go

Try to get the call on a Tuesday as the sun slides down behind Chick Clark hill.  You’ll need travelling time to think, so you’re gonna want to drive when you go.

When you get there, there will be flowers and food and best dresses.  There will be ties that have long gone untied.  Hard ground will be opened and then closed again. 

Try to take leave before noontime, and drive with your brothers to Red Brush Creek.  You’ll want to remember the open ground closed and the who of he not present, and you’re gonna want to swim.  You are going to want to drink a little.  And you might want to cry.  

Boy, how you might want to cry.
