writing at the Broke Cafe
imagining I had some cash
sipping gin & tonics and
eating bangers & mash
bouncer bounced right up me
as if he had something to say
‘who do you think you are?’
I said, ‘Ernest Hemingway’

it’s a world without care
a bus that charges no fare

so I grabbed a taxicab
and ditched it at the Square Kenmore
a guy was sitting on a stool
checking IDs at the door
he flipped out a flashlight and
as I turned my back
he said, ‘this ain’t your picture,
Mr. Kerouac’

then I was pulling a rickshaw down
the median of Mass Ave
and it looked suspicious, boy
it’s not something I would normally have
a cop pulled me over
and said, ‘when you turn, you blink’
I said, ‘I’m the Dalai Lama
and I get free drinks’

get control of the bus

don’t worry, girl
it’s a careless world
