Otis first noticed
The unusual mark on his neck when he was 42
He was married to a lady,
Though that term is generous,
Who looked like a nesting doll having sex with its own shadow

The pain of being born had never left her shoulders
Ain't that something to do with being Catholic?

Otis said don't be scared
There's more to life than living long
He pulled her close and held her tight
And took her tears upon his chest

Otis as a ghost
Was a bigger success than as a human being
They say that sometimes if you listen hard enough
You can hear him not giving in
