age old question

_LME0051

where is the junkman
yelling rags rags
crossing potholes
river rock
timberbeam
and false
facades?

where is the daylight
when everything
is half broken
casting shadows
here and
there?

the sheet music’s
caught fire
the piano s
broken
and the
champ
has a
glass
jaw.

the taps are fucked
the toilet
won’t flush
the five clocks
on the wall
all have
different
times.

the hubs won t lock
the tires are bald
the gauge is on e
and christ almighty
the land lady
just lost a
rattlesnake
under
the seat.

the beer has past the
best before due date
all the wine is
6% lonesome charlie
and the whiskey
ain’t just aged
but deliberately
deliquent.

where is the ride
the bus
the train
the taxi
the stranger
going
my way?
