Random Poem:

Lilly Underbelly

Lilly Underbelly
(I named her so)
Can you come over
(before I have to go)
Put away your crotch
(I don't need a ho)
Sell me a cigarette
(I don't smoke it's just for show)
so I can hear your drink-me-now voice
(well when I'm sober she sounds like a crow)
Let me snap you up and then print you out
(in front of a camera I'm a pro)
Just don't tell Jane my wife-the-insane
(she's threatened to chop off my big toe)
As a lover I can't have you, don't even want to
(had enough that time I took her in the snow)
but your snapshot moment presence I want to make mine
(Sorry Jane my wife-the-insane).
