THERE'S ALWAYS A BACKDOOR

there is just
too much
pleasing going on in the world
and
not enough understanding
not enough drinking
fucking
not enough movie time-
the really good
old b/w ones where
you can hear the dregs of
Rachmaninoff
or feel the sexiness of
Chet Baker
there is just
too much crowding
and
not enough alone
in the stale air
in the cities
on the crumbling
mountain sides
our hearts will not be able to
take it
nor will they bare to bleed
on paper
stone
tits and dicks
on candlelit dinners that
end in a bang
or the biting of lower lips
so
i say to you now
keep on drinking
keep on fucking
get your movie time in
get on
alone
and remember this
when you walk into a place
that doesn’t bring
a smile to your face
be reassured
there’s always a backdoor
to set you free.
