Fingering the tan line
wedding ring
and Birkin bag
In her husband’s hands
He starts to wave
But her eyes cross and legs shaved

Smoking in the bathroom
Tarot cards
in rows beneath
the piss covered sink
All my crew’s convinced
but I’ve got Heimdall with Temperance

Noon shoe shine apostles
On my dust
I share a laugh with
The boys in drag
Spent two balloons
In a booth watching showtunes

And slept outside
out loud
With the court cards of downtown

La Brea is always praying
Bring around
a living saint
Her body paint’s
On the driver door
So my boys ride with cold sores

Three-piece suit on the sidewalk
“Catch me if you can
‘cause I
long to die
in your arms again."
It’s the same thing, don’t talk back

Because I need this house
this cash
this doubt

Because I need my cash
my house
and oh my God, all this doubt

Have you seen my wife when you’re out on your town
Because I know she’s not mine but I still panic when I watch her going down
