From home to house to car to bar to
bed to bar to loft to
job to job to job to bar to
couch to house to crouch
to selling clothes to
pay the rent, to beach and
fever nights to boat to
road to race to knees to
hell and back in raucous
cheer in one thin year. To
substitute and lose. To
car to road to highway
to clasping hands in
prayer, to cashmere coat and
calfskin boots, to house to
room to roam
from hymn to him to her
to him. To bar to storage to car to
cell to car and
living in it. To
being found to stranger
house to car to scar to shelter
to killing afternoons
in library quiet, to phone to
friend, to come
to this, to grips,
