Drifting Through the Town


All the sad young men, drifting through the town
Drinking up the night, trying not to drown

Never Show Anybody


Don't ever quit. Never quit. Never show anybody you're hurt. Grin and walk through the canon smoke.

Four or Five Drinks


       I smelled of gin. Not just casually, as if i had taken four or five drinks of a winter morning to get out of bed on, but as if the Pacific ocean was pure gin and i had nosedived off the boat deck. The gin was in my hair and eyebrows, on my chin and under my chin. It was on my shirt. I smelled like dead toads.
