tranny transient talk


eggplant stilettos
eye shadow in flashy mint
champagne glass in hand
                                                  rotting teeth exposed
                                                  his blanket and bourbon gripped
                                                  cerulean fleece
she wears curled gold wings
and neon cellophane bra
flings her cigarette
                                                    out into the street
                                                    where soot smoke speaks Spanish
                                                    he nabs the lit butt
she hands him two Marlboros
a truck stops for her
                                                      Lima bean don't go
                                                      with him! He doesn't know what
                                                      you've got under there
