a girl cries in the shower

I’m watching tours of houses I’ll never own because paper money doesn’t gather fast enough to windfall on my porch & this one just happens to rest its head in the Waldorf Astoria in Versailles

       where marble & elegance combine collide and resign

in the same breath I am a toe-beaned hellcat & the lioness stalking your children behind glass

Buying soap bars to keep my hands clean
      so I won’t get discarded

         even if the trash
     is exactly where I belong

     I watch a lot of police interrogation
        & the thing which puts me off the most
    besides the awful crime
        is swearing to God you never did it

          you should know I’m predisposed to disappointment
             I am guilty as charged
                 soughing near the sea
