Iris DeMent

The Last Toast

I drink to the house, already destroyed,
And my whole life, too awful to tell,
To the loneliness we together enjoyed,
I drink to you as well,
To the eyes with deadly cold imbued,
To the lips that betrayed me with a Ile,
To the world for being cruel and rude,
To God who didn't save us, or try.

Great,Iris. Just when I thought you couldn`t depress me again, you come from another equally,if not more depressing angle, and all within 66 seconds,way to go! But I still think you`re the best type of sadness;at least it`s like something out of Carson McCullers,or Flannery O`Connor.You should write southern gothic,it pays better.
