Crazy Man’s Outfit



Look at that outfit

little day-pack

bigger back-pack

side by side like a couple of tombstones

there at the head of my rack

which is the top bunk

the bigger pack swankly wearin’ my hat ~ soiled

and crummy of course

with a teen magazine centerfold of Kristen Stewart

hanging on the wall watching over

this poor old homophobic man’s outfit

all under the fucked-up asbestos ceiling of

this poor old mission

oh & there’s a sprinkler head up there too

ready to go off at the slightest sign of fire

everything I need in the world

right here &

with not a penny in my pocket

or a job to which to go

in the morning

   ho ho ho…
