she’s free and she’s wild

Cleo’s going to make it now
she’s got her shit together
she split with Barney
Barney wasn’t good for her
she got a new apartment
and a new red Camero
she works this dance joint
drives 20 miles to work from
Redondo Beach
goes to night school
helps at Synanon
read the I-Ching
does Yoga
lives with a 19 year old boy
with curling hairs on his chest
has a Moped
eats health food
Barney wasn’t good for her
she’s got her shit together
she’s into T.M.
she roars through signals
in her red Camero
with her long green fingernails.
poor Barney.
he just doesn’t know what he
lost.
