Why? Why would you do this? Because I think it’s gonna be a whopper, and I think you might be scared. And however scared you are, Clara, the man you are with right now, the man I hope you are with, believe me, he is more scared than anything you can imagine right now, and he…he needs you.
Now who you think I am? Worse than all the rest? That’s what I’ll be now, just like no one said. Did anybody see that? There’s a crack right down my head. But mama, how they’ll cheer for us, while the blood drips down our legs.
I’d like to know if you could see through the soul like I could see to your soul back then,
and reach your hands through all the hurt and defenses. Would you still try if you knew I was gone?
I wanna caution you to watch out for the wolves and for the mad, mad weather.
