What More Do You Want? by Jon Bennett

I don’t know if it was speed
but he looked bad
the old Irish queer
could dance though
and would grab a handful
of whatever crackhead
was glued to the bar
do the tango
His shop was failing
but when he died
after selling antiques
for fifty years
he found a place
among them
in a very
nice
vase.
