Junk St. by Robert Beveridge

I guess
there’s nothing else
to say

I hung up the phone
and cried again

her voice
was like someone
beating
on the hollow barrel
of a syringe

grapevine
says she’s fucking
her pusher now

I guess
she gets it all free
’cause he thinks
he loves her

maybe it’s easier
to love a shell

I don’t think so
