"if you can't hear a man
walk into a room,
he ain't worth a dime."
so he wore thumbtacks in his shoes before he walked tall in boots & suits
a dashing anachronism, Dandy in the Underworld
meets dirtysweet dirtypunk Queen of BeautifulMistakes
& bad ideas in the back of the bar
sipping slick liquor & cheap beer
chasing boys with broken halos
& Bolanesque hair curled goldenbrown
stumbling slouching slurring seductive
"is this the part where i get to kiss you?"
sometimes it's just one of those nights
sweet Georgia sky suffocating lustflower scent
& full Moon streets dampened by rainsweat
walking home @ 4am to a scalding shower.
& i cut my own hair
& i cut my own ties
for springtime is all about the art of burning bridges and smiling broadly
