Jose Has Left The Building


I ran into Matthew

He was selling cherry

Encrusted cashews

I’m like damn, that sounds good, how much?

He said, for you? a thousand bucks

That’s a little pricey

Then Matthew noticed

The building I was coming out of

He said, what were you doing

In there? In there, what were you doing?

His finger pointed, it shone

Underneath the streetlight

2 minutes ago it was mid-afternoon

And now a dark warm summer night?

I said, let’s take a walk my friend

I got a story worth a thousand cashews

Chicago Tales

Sexy Gymnast

I’m in a boardroom
With men of so-called business
In comes a gymnast
And I fall in love
I follow her out the building
And board the same bus as her
Then when she gets out
I do too

She enters her apartment
And it’s about 3 o’clock
When she hears a knock

She opens it and sees no one there
Then she closes it and turns around
And I’m write there
