THESE ARE SOME MAJOR NAILS
If pandemonium breaks out, I think you'll
know; and he wasn't in the Civil War
either. Major Nails, I mean. Testing the
peppers on the graveyard field, they
shot him in the head from forty yards
away. Going down (he was heard to
say), 'Damn it all, I'm dead today!'
I went all through school, preoccupied
but nonetheless. No one ever related this
story to me. The kind of history this is, it
falls away, and loses meaning over time.
