You know you’re in West Memphis when
The sun sinks behind the sheets of night.
When the raccoons come out to play and stalk the mice
You know you’re in West Memphis when the
Wide-eyed horses stir. Because something in the
Hayloft is making them uptight. But only
When it moves. You know something is there.
