3 pairs of panties

Sweden is a lousy place
Paris is a lousy place

hatchets cut off the
wrong heads

when you left
you left behind
3 pairs of panties
and I’m too fat to
wear them

London is a lousy place

Los Angeles is a lousy place
now:
dank clicking beast
dead fish memory stalking
me,
ambulances as flower petals:

what was wrong was never
understood
and what was right never
lasted.
