"in heaven, everything is fine; you got your good things, and you've got mine"

"let the fakers have their fun
they're not hurting anyone"

born under barstools
a footnote in some hard-luck writer's notebook

hung up on clotheslines in the diaphanous air
collecting rainwater and growing heavy
sandwiched between damp sheets

later, among hitmen and actuaries
gathering at the steak place

hang dog stares, napkins stuck with phlegm
atypic faces scowling at knives and forks

America loves an underdog
but don't tell that to its poor
