White Rice With Brown Gravy

have you confessed your sins…

I have…

who heard ’em…

a friend…keeps secrets…sealed like an envelope…

what did ya tell him…

I said there was this guy…and he had done some bad things…told him he’d stolen from people…beat up some guys…killed a woman…

told him that…

did…

told him I’d had just ’bout enough…couldn’t stand it no more…so…I did somethin’ ’bout it…

you show him the knife…

I threw that knife away…

you threw it away…

yeah…didn’t want any part of it no more…

you told him all this…

said I’d stabbed him multiple times in the guts…said I’d made sure he was dead…

they ain’t found his body yet…

they won’t…not till years from now…he’ll stink up the earth eventually…just like he stunk up everything else…

you glad you did it…

yeah…

best be leavin’ pretty soon…

you got the money for the Greyhound ticket…

right here…headin’ down to Joplin huh…

am…hide out there for awhile…there’s a diner there…serves white rice smothered in brown gravy…get some…

thanks for everything…

it was my pleasure…
