More MAIL-ART I've Sent, RFD-7

At the very south end of Otisco Lake,
near Amber, NY.
( from Badlands, B. Springsteen,):
Workin in the field till you get your back burned
Workin `neath the wheels till you get your facts learned.
Baby I got my facts learned real good right now.
You better get it straight darling:
Poor men wanna be rich, rich men wanna be kings,
And a king aint satisfied till he rules everything.

 Taken at the New York State Fair
Corn Field & Church
Navarino, New York
(inspired by Rodgers & Hammerstein)
There's a bright, golden haze on the meadow.
The corn is as high as an elephant's eye,
And it looks like it's climbing clear up to the sky.

Oh, what a beautiful Mornin'
Oh, what a beautiful day.

Navarino, New York.

 Sowing in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness,
Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eve;
Waiting for the harvest, and the time of reaping,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

Going forth with weeping, sowing for the Master,
Though the loss sustained our spirit often grieves;
When our weeping’s over, He will bid us welcome,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

"Florida Fences"
"Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above,
Don't fence me in.
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love,
Don't fence me in.
Let me be by myself in the evenin' breeze,
And listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees,
Send me off forever but I ask you please,
Don't fence me in."
some fences,
like the one on the left,
 keep cattle at bay
others, like the one on the right
-which was installed for the
Republican National Convention
in Tampa-
 keep democracy at bay...

Thunder road - b. springsteen:
The screen
door slams

Mary's dress sways
Like a vision she dances across the porch
As the radio plays
Roy orbison singing for the lonely
Hey that's me and I want you only
Don't turn me home again
I just can't face myself alone again
Don't run back inside
Darling you know just what Im here for
So you're scared and you're thinking
That maybe we aint that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You aint a beauty, but hey you're alright
Oh and that's alright with me

 an abandoned (?) trailer park,
BOwling Green, FLA
"murder in the trailer park" -
michael timmins, a cowboy junkies song
 Murder tonight in the trailer park Mrs. Annabelle Evans found
With her throat cut after dark
Her pockets turned inside out
Her dresser drawers turned upside down
Anna's neighbor Peg, identifies the body Lets out a hollow kind of sound
Homicide is tying yellow ribbons Around her silver Air Stream
Red cherries slashing up the night Cutting through that cordoned crime scene
There's been a murder In the trailer park tonight
Murder tonight in the trailer park
Pack your things, Ann MarieWe're heading west
We're going to make a fresh startI've been saving pennies
Been looking forward to this day
No time for questions are you coming
Or are you going to stay?
Crosstown at the Waterton
George Evans is sitting tall and tight
Buying drinks for all the regulars
Bragging about how them bones
Danced for him tonight
There's been a murderIn the trailer park tonight
Murder tonight in the trailer park
Faceless man counting crumpled bills
Hotel neon fights the dark
TV set in the corner, they're talking murder
On the late-night news
He turns down the sound
Waits for the sports
He only wants to know
Did I win or did I lose?
There's been a murderI
n the trailer park tonight
Murder in the trailer park
There's been a murder
In the trailer park tonight,
yeah yeah
There's been a murderIn the trailer park
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
There's been a murder
In the trailer park tonight

 Candy's Room
Springsteen Inspired
" get to Candys room, you gotta walk the darkness of Candys hall..."
another Springsteen inspired piece.
"Early in the morning factory whistle blows,
Man rises from bed and puts on his clothes,
Man takes his lunch, walks out in the
morning light,
It’s the working, the working, just the
working life.
[ Lyrics from: ]
Through the mansions of fear, through the
mansions of pain,
I see my daddy walking through them
factory gates in the rain,
Factory takes his hearing, factory gives him life,
The working, the working, just the
working life.

End of the day factory whistle cries,
Men walk through these gates with death in
their eyes,
And you just better believe boy,
somebody’s gonna get hurt tonight,
It’s the working, the working, just the
working life."
