I just took a zip of Whiskey

out of a Gatorade bottle

where I poured a half-pint into

my sister will try to fly me out of here

next tuesday

the last seven nights outside

I´m sitting on the ground

leaning onto this big tree

getting a buzz

smoking cheap cigars

hoping for a few good lines

I love this park

bathrooms open from 10am until 8pm

a waterfountain outside

a huge clock on a highrise nearby

almost never police

the sound of people playing tennis

and a good guy living in his little van

who is talking to me about God

another zip, another drag

this girl I know walkes by

she doesn´t see me

and I ask myself

would I see me?
