lyrics

In the door of a one bedroom apartment,
the man raises the half-exhausted cigarette,
the tip of which contains a bright carbuncle
that flashes as he breathes in,

and looks at the variegated pools of oil on the wet surface of the road
where it has just rained and his daughter hasn't called for years.

Pick up truck beds full of hay. Boys and girls lolling
as machines wind their neon way
around an endless loop of syrup slowness.
We are too young to be part of this.

We stand in line for a children's movie
and gawk, slack jawed. Maybe someone's mother
will buy us a ticket to something Rated R.
