Riding In Cars With Boys

The van’s chock

full of tools

left to knock

against rolling cans

on the floor

‘cause the sparky

lifting me home’s

just got clean,

he’s in full bloom

happy as Larry

elbow out the side,

offers me a vile from a

glove-box fulla

homemade vape juice

and a sidelong grin

from a mouth

fulla gunmetal grey,

and I reckon right then

not knowing him

from a bar of soap

that he’s a good bloke,

as far as good blokes go.
