Mississippi July

“Hell can’t be no hotter than a Mississippi July. The heat don’t bother a kid, though. Not the heat nor the scratches nor the bugs.  She don’t know how it is killing her. It takes all of the flexibility out, it scrapes you like scraping a plate to the dogs.” – Jack Butler, “Country Girl” from Hawk Gumbo and Other Stories.
