He knows the meaning of long, deep night

After all, he's watched many of them till the sun climbed into the sky

Watching white lines on the highway in a fight

Against sleep, waiting for light

There were nights he thought he might die

Like when the Klan threatened to cut him from asshole to appetite

Always before an election the nights when he would try

To count votes all through the night

None are easy, but none as hard as when she came nigh

To steal his sleep and remind him of the feeling of her against him tight.
