when i quit drinking
i will come see you
at the bleeding edge of the empire i will make peace with you

you been waiting
i been long wandering

along the wire
here by the driveway
widows walk with heads of their husbands in hand

and you and your sister
watched the wagons from the screen door

the dogs in the yard
peek through the bars
and howl at the ambulance bells

the storm crossed the desert
with great white sails

and out in the yard
by the big black car
the ash from the pine fire piled like snow in your hair

and in the right light
they said you looked like an angel
