Mean Streets # 2

If the earth stopped spinning around the sun
and people fell off the world
or under the manholes of East End Flats
where the broken glass-eyed boys
bleed like pigs through the cracks,
the see-through girls without true orbs
will still rip you off of red and
yellow sunrise pills and all those
little balloons with happy faces.
It’s funny how everything floats in remission
just before it all turns to black solstice
cast shadows of scorpions on the moon.
