it’s funny what you remember when you’re trying not to remember what you’d like to forget

there was Kenny
trying to break up
a fight
that Joey couldn’t stop
that Phil got into
because of his big mouth
at White Castle
in between those belly bombs
and stale coffee
and all three
getting hell beaten out
of them
and the guy who did it
pressing charges
and poor Kenny
being over 21
is the one
who goes to jail
only to return
a year later
wearing mascara
hip hugging pants
and selling what he has
on four two street

  1. Nice… in a were kind of way…
    Of curse, It remains me of Lou Reed…
    “…Doo,do, Doo…Doo,do,doo…. Doo,do,Doo…Doo do,Doo ”
    Of course the song is playing while I’m typing this…
    …it will be stuck on my head all day…
    …Something I’d like to forget…
