Post Office Walls

Always loved going to the post office in Jemison to look at the wanted posters on the wall. Aunt Marion was the post mistress and I spent hours studying the criminal faces, memorizing the dates and the crimes. Then I would head over to the drug store to check out the new rock'n'roll magazines. Dig, Hep Cat's Review... all the good ones.

All I've ever wanted, really, is to know who I am and have some girl's hand to hold. Nothing changes. Ever. Take care of that little kid in you. Love. That's the mystery. That's the answer. Loneliness is the enemy and we're all lonely.
