...the Raven


A Jukebox that has
Hendrix Band of Gypsies?
A Bar that has
Strong Beer at
an affordable price?
Seats that are booths
girls that are ruths
you can smoke in
there too
"yeah Bay-Bee
What the hell are
you writing"

To a man with a pamphlet:
"No thanks. I've already
got my own religion. I
made it up. It's called
fucking Reality."

drop drop drop
Umbrella Umbrella Umbrella
rain rain rain
slosh slosh slosh
walk walk walk
smile smile smile
wet wet wet

...being there


Australia, Vietnam, India
Cuba, Italy, Italy
I've seen it all
warm smiles
and warm hearts
Old people with
squinty eyes
Squinty people with
old eyes
They accepted Master,
Visa, and American Express

A Bulgarian girl so beautiful
I wanted to write a poem

She is one of the girls
I had already written
sung
dreamed about
so many times

Starting out the first few lines

Wooo!
I like yelling at
girls on bikes
Hey! Are you hot?
I can't see you you're
going too fast.
slow down ...
... if you're hot
