She was a Harvard grad with a law degree, but she like to troll the bars in the seedy part of town. She said “Howdy” and “y’all” and “ain’t you just the cutest thing” to men who looked like prospects for a night in a motel. They had no idea who she was. Until the day one of them showed up in her office.

  1. “Howdy,” he grunted and then spat into the powdery dirt. “Din’t recollect inviting ya’ll out to my homestead.”

    He swung the rifle he held upwards level with our bellies. “Ya musta seen the ‘No Trespassing Sign’ on the gate… Might be best if ya’ll skitter back to where ya came from.”

  2. On those evenings of chill ,
    Seeking cheap thrill,
    With lots of time to kill,
    Out would come , Bill ,
    Dressed as a dowdy ,
    His eyes a-cloudy ,
    A joint hanging askew
    He would greet anew ,
    All whom he didn’t
    and those whom he knew,
    he’d tip his hat moodily
    and say cheerily
