Strings


Ginny Jean, puppeteer and part time bartender

pulls my strings every time my glass goes empty

"this one's on the Cheese," she whispers

 

Needless to say, I'm

as tanked as the fish behind the bar

 

Ginny Jean lives far out of town

with this cyclehead clown

who went down

to Mexico with the Cheese 

and she wants me please, please

to come out there, but jeeze

I can hardly walk as I ease

off the bar stool and tease

my way back to the john

 

my ex-wife sits at

that table over there

with her current lover

 

I give Ginny Jean my keys
