      name your price



you looked so
different without
your school uniform.
you took your
sunglasses off by
the pool, & you can
play the queen if I
play the fool.

but if you come down to Chicago,
we could live that life we used to know.
if you’re ever in Chicago,
I could live that lie I used to know.

you said you
hadn’t seen me
around for a while.
& oh your swimsuit’s gold
(how I used to be)
& how your memory
had faded
from me.

& all my buildings
they are crumbling,
you wouldn’t
touch them with
your ivory skin.
& oh your jewelry
is so pretty,
to tarnish it,
it would be
a sin.

& I remember:
those days by the poolside, we were
so young and strung out on
all that cash
but now all I see
is tar and threadbare clothes:
a life of flowers traded for the one I love.
