Talk is cheap so I spend freely

The last time I spent this much 

effort and sweat

on a person

I was burying a stiff in the well

and pulling the 

loose change from the pockets

of his pants

You throw and threw and left a welt

on my forehead

bumped noggin

nodding not unlike a duck ducks down in the water

I can believe in many idols and sit on a stool

that has been kicked around

before I will leave your


Something clicked and I decided to become

more acquainted with




The End
