Where You Were

ENTRY 231

I went down to the road where
no one goes willingly.

I went down ’cause it’s
a famous intersection

where if I’d die
I’d be seen.

I’m going down to the crossroads
where I know the blues people
would have sympathy I think, but

I’m going down to
the crossroads
because

when I left
you sang so sweetly for all.

— Douglas Gilbert
