it was nice of you to let my brother come, she said,
no i understand first time here and all you needed another eye, do you think he could arrange me some smoko?
you don’t need ganga, filing her nails, you have me,
yeah, hibiscus in bloom, but i need to escape geometry and grammar if i’m gonna find the sweetest parts of you,
so this isn’t your home? what do you do?
well, predictable is controllable as the old man says, he said, stubbing out a cigarette, i find beautiful things and move them somewhere their beauty can be better appreciated,
you ever heard of Rimbaud? her brother said later, leaning over the pool table to line up a shot, now that’s an interesting ending, man,
no, he said, looking at his watch and wondering how much longer she would be, the rattle of the ball into the pocket,
don’t worry, the young man said, you got plenty of time to lose this one,
