Good Morning Heartache, Goodbye Billie

from Billie James Is Not Your Lover by Billie James Project



Our narrator, Elliott James, brother of Billie James, recalls his brother’s last moments on earth. In the hospital with him; Mrs. James, their mother, and a white doctor. Elliott remembers his brothers talent and music. We learn Billie’s death is the result of a “bad operation.” Mrs. James is displeased with the outcome.
