lady knows before she knows  
hears it in thunder  
in rain
it rustles through canebrake  
and thicket  
settles over house  

catfish gumbo bubblin’ hot  
hushpuppies fried up crisp  
coffee with chicory    
makes smell like home  

lady passes mop  
knowin’ sneaks behind
catches her in mous of breast  
wraps breathing in stop  

she sits  
wet floor  
tears
rain  
sweated hair  
half moon fingers
clutched to fists  
beat on knees  

lady whispers  
mère sainte
peu de fleur  
didn’t I pray?
didn’t I kneel?
didn’t I tell my beads?  

she wails
oh god
co faire?  
why?  

lady knows
before she knows
charcoal man
ain’ comin’ home
this night

You displayed her senses

very well.

felt the thunder rollin through ladies belly aching, tears like river rain and pain from lonely sounds and wish I could tell the lady that after every storm, the sun does shine again.     So beautiful this is Kate,

thank you for your tears
aziza…

Stranger  
an out of control lady is so appealing
I see you want him to come home to her  
but what of his shoofly ways?
must he give them up?    

thank you Sunkissed…

thank you Gentle Spirit
I hope the sun shines on his face
for her…

thank you Sandra
I’m glad you like it…

maybe this man of heated wood
needs to start feeling an old fashion emotion
of jealousy in a rival

Dang!!!

Did I get them all now?

I will have to re read all these in order now for continuity's sake.  This is so good.  

PS.... my heart aches for her... I know how she feels.

Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt and the keyring.
