About this product
- DescriptionGrowing up in Memphis, #3: In 1952 Dewey Phillips invented Elvis.It happened on the radio.Rock n' Roll saved my life.In 1960 the bad guys sold Elvis into slavery.Don't let anybody tell you different. This morning I made love with the lettuce picker: Every year the lettuce picker plants her seeds in October.Lettuce loves this time of the year in the Chihuahua Desert.October passes and November comes.The lettuce grows leafy and happy.The lettuce picker slips out to the garden in the morning. I will t tell you how old I am.I will t tell you how old she is. But her legs are white, her rear endis clad in purple pajamasand is raised like a flag plantedin the dirtfor the preservation of love.Today is Sunday, the day of Sabbath.A day to remember ourselves.A day to worship all that is holy.This is what we do when we make love.
