time in the river

Styx damned for Ferrymen
(free for ladies on Tuesdays!
shrimp gentlemen(stake on plates
for skimpy dancers to stay fattened
Shadows make Light a color
she is brown and barely legal
(half our world pays to watch the other half-
she has a child.Absinthe father
Cry in your bear,boys
Breasts of young mothers
Thick muscle warder bouncers
supply the walls that money can buy
Car park of despairing second hand owners
Stretch debt limos Saturday nights
Here is where the man becomes a boy
Dilute the water/inflate the prices
He will not remember if she drank
his empty wallet morning hangs over..
