..."whether i look out of the window at 5.13 in the morning
or get piss drunk at the 4th Street Cafe, there's always a poem
hiding there somewhere...
I take the barman's eyeball, the waitress' neck, my girl's smile, the local wino's
fist, the reverend's suit and i add a shot of kerosene, two table spoons of tabasco,
a pinch of spite and i throw it all in a blender..."
