The thing about Memphis is
The water runs different there.
Like a ten year Old when nobody’s watching
Or a six year old that’s proud.
They don’t check every bag on the outbound buses
Or log their miles in their taxi cabs.
The folks on the street smile
And everyone is happy enough
cash and carry and all.
Even when funds are a bit short.
And even though the water runs different
it feels wet just the same.
It’s just as wet as water ought to be
