Mudlark No. 49 (2013)
Saw one in the shower and tried to see another
Saw another falling out of her swimsuit and tried to make another
Never got slapped for placing a hand but surely placed a hand
We played Dr. Pepper and drank suicides until our teeth fell out

One a meth freak       Another a Jesus freak
Another a sex addict       Another an asshole who used to fondle
The space between
You can sing all you want about being the same

If Raymond Chandler went a few rounds with Baudelaire
I’d like to get a metal detector and scan this whole valley
The bridge over Pond Brook says someone owns it
You got the tickets, right

You got the tickets, right
