Gonna waste you, little girl
and it's time that you were told this.
There's a place for you in this world
and that's in my soapdish.

Call me a cold Caiaphus
a sight for psoriasis.
Innocence, deny us thus this love.

And fine as the line where a rape becomes a murder…
my life, a shambles
my wife, a chandelier.

She wouldn't break her habit
so I broke three bones in her hand
then I fed the dog a radish
felt finished as a man.

Said half a rosary
in a single sigh no lie.
She brought out all the good in me
and taught it how to die.

So now she's got the curse
there in her deck chair sunning.
The engines of the hearse
are running.


from A House for the Dead and a Porch for the Dying, released February 25, 1994
