Slack Tide by Matt Labash

My personal favorite reply came from “7-11 Truther”:Wife left meDaughters don’t respect meMy job is a jokeAny more questions, Elmo??? Come back in mid-March, then maybe we can talk.”So instead, I’ve been steaming lately as a sanity-saver. And Nick Cave, God bless him, is one of those. Though I’ve played Cave tunes in these pages before, I’ve never been a true aficionado of his music. I just so happen to think Cave, a conflicted Christian himself, is a man worth listening to on the often symbiotic subjects of faith’n’doubt.
