dedalus Posted September 12, 2014 Share Posted September 12, 2014 East Texas, she don’t say much to you, small little towns where they say move on, we don’t want your kind. Lousiana looks the same. Same-ish. Not so. Come into New Orleans you can feel it: a shabby old town, lets you come on down First thing you do is hit the bars and meet the locals, get hit over the head by the music, the way they talk. Are we still in America? Sho’ nuff honey chile, something creole french, we have crossed an invisible border. Where you come from boy? Ain’t no never no mind, you having a good time, son? Brilliant, totally fuckin-A, sir! The poliss here are sleepy, son, You don’t want to wake them. Yessir! Thank you. Y’all be good, gonna drag ma weary ass on home. Good night, Senator, good night, goo … My Christ, was I talking to a US senator, when ummmmm, you smell so good. Some woman (I beg you) is nuzzling my ear. Mmmm, feels good. This girl is black, She is Afro-American, she is kissing me, and it feels so hot and sexy cool. She is lovely. Her name is … sorry, I forget, but she asks me home and she says to me have you ever loved a black girl before? I say no (which is true) and she says it will cost thirty dollars. Oh no, a wave of disappointment rolls over me, just another silly girl for sale, lost on the waves of necessity, the family, all that need for cash. She laughs, she says it doesn’t matter. You’re cute. I kinda like the way you talk. Let’s see what you can do in bed. In the morning, drained, very happy I look upon her feminine sleeping form, so black and beautiful, lightly snoring. I slip fifty dollars under the pillow. Will she be angry? I hope not. She needs it, I think she will understand.
