Waiting on the Devil

and we’re leaning here against wood posts
while he sings
“Well, I went down to them crossroads,
I tried to flag a ride.
Standing at the crossroads
aint nobody see me
know me
everybody pass me by.”
wailing on to that fabled audience
just beyond the pale
anxious for the sunset
looking for all the world
like he could wait a lifetime.
