FALL 2011

Jackie Moss


I’ve been living in the woods with a redhead, he said

She’s good lookin but crazy
One minute she’s nice
The next she hates my guts
One night she tried to claw my eyes out
I have to get away from her
She was in a car wreck
Got $50, 000 in a settlement
Gave it all away
to the bums
Now she’s got nothing
No one comes around no more
You look good Mark, I say 
I don’t know how

I drink a bottle of Vodka a day
The work dried up

I don’t know
I’ve gotta call Bobby
Maybe he has something for me
