i tell you this,

no eternal reward will forgive us now,
he screamed throwing the banana skin down
to the ground you know what’s coming next
haha, some wicked wind this way comes
dressed in silk perfume,

wasn’t me uh uh neither frankenstien
nor rubencrantz
some schlopenhaur says F.
slamming the glass down and it shatters,
where is she son, that was your job,
to keep her here inside,
she’s gone, boy, left me dead
a pirates heart on ebbing tide,

he looks down at the piano,
like a shatter of
pearls on burning deck,
shakes droplets from
his cuffs,
the cabin boys name was skipper,
play that one,
