Leaves


Anne Marie stretched 
across the back of the Oldsmobile
just talking with Karla and
sharing a Marlboro
Mike is a jerk
cuz he hasn't yet called her
two weeks at college
and he can't be bothered


Well you know
he can go climb a tree
cuz he ain't got the
decency
to give the mother
of his child a shout


damn college boy
got it all
figured out.
