please do not put cat on the piano.

the infiltrating music from the front bar

where am i?

LES. attorney street.

but really, where am i?

i wore too much eye make-up.
because i knew it would keep me from crying.

i hate squatting.

i love him.
with his hair parted on the side.

and his friends with their pill problems and baldness.

one act plays that drag on forever.

i am not strong.

i lay a box full of memories upon my kitchen table.
next to his beer.

this is my proof.
