skinny junkies

skinny junkies drag their squalling children
by their wrists through parking lots at discount chains.

rusting junkers’ ancient engines idle in the artificial light.

skinny junkies in hip-hugging pants
entice odd bookish lads who ought to be at home.

tattooed hate boys wearing women-beaters
rule the restless night, scrapping over scraps.

cops cruise whores who cruise for copless corners
where they can stand and give a wave and whistle.

skinny junkies smack their crying brats
and scream unheeded screams.

rusting junkers pull away in cloudy blue-white rumbles.
