To where it scratch grate hurts

Now what?

Taxi’s skin skid competitvely to a stop
And this time screetching sirens
Pick up the damp bloodied pieces

Beat

Blue baubles swing doof around necks
While dance worn boots pause stick
To cigarette street butts

Quiet

He draws deeper the smoke
To where it feels
To where it grate scratch hurts
To where the pills can’t reach

Tomorrow

When he wakes in an aspirin sweat
His fridge laugh punches out an empty OJ bottle
And shivers for more than it asks for

For the satisfaction of a full house life

Silence

To where it scratch grate hurts
