Lonesome Steve

“Lonesome Steve is the music you hear when at long last there's no more whining, no more indecision and nothing left to do but to crawl into one last long warm bath with a serrated steak knife and a mix tape of Wayne Hancock and John Coltrane. Because it's all over. Because you're in Kentucky every damn day, you go to bed with whiskey and tears, you wake up with hope and it's still Kentucky, no place of myth and high tenor, but a forgotten land of two-lane roads and stern faces peering from split-levels in sinkholes, long after the High Lonesome sound hit the acid rain and ran back down into a Velvet Underground where grass is never really blue and mosquitoes collect in the wet fetid spots beneath window air units. And it's over. It's over like John Lennon's dream. Like bituminous coal. Think if Nick Cave and Dale Evans had a devil child. Lonesome Steve. Dress sexy for his funeral.”
