because every pretty girl is worth it,
dean told me; I’d asked him about his last
escapade, a trip to mississippi
that had cost him his job as well as his
life savings and dignity. every girl
is pretty to you, dean. yep, he admits.
till they prove otherwise . . . but even then
you got to take it with a grain of salt
because they get skittish sometimes and the
best of them hiss like a cat in the rain
with their backs against the wall. every girl
is worth a thousand mile journey, bobby;
and every man that don’t think so is wrong,
and that’s what makes us a dying breed.
