Let’s Get One Thing Perfectly Straight, just like the neck of my favorite guitar. You know, with a little bit of curve near the 12th fret.

poetry

Oh darling
I can see you,
with your firey eyes and
your samurai smile
just like in the movies
and you’re looking this way
because you can see me
seeing you, bare teeth and
cut hair and all, squirming
in the warmer spots of sunlight
with this collared shirt unbuttoned
at the top and
All we understand is
old jazz records.
