Down at Olympic & Georgia Last Night

I was thinking things over

            after my burrito and coffee

I crossed the street and sat

in the middle of the busy corner

where the bus stops and watched

the dealers and the cops jumping

all over the little whore’s shit

a young black man pointed out

his pretty young blonde friend

and he raised his eyebrows

to ask me whether I was buying

I looked a little away and thought

of other people instead

for a little while

persistently the pimp offered the blonde

she had a good nice ass a nice body


and furthermore

said the pimp to me

remember this

she’s convenient
