in my head, i can hear peter lorre plead,
"but johnny, i'm so hungry"
and i crack up for a minute,
with the same sentiment
and head for the grocer's
then remember rent's past due
and that shit-mobile
just sucked up over six hundred
dollars, yet he still wants to take
it back to boston
i sweep and resweep the floors
throw out extraneous micellaneous
odd bits while he's still at work
pack up extra cutlery and things
we won't need
each box somehow gets me
a bit closer to home...
