you Gangster,
hangin’ in the shadows
down the alley
You think
I don’t see you
sliding ‘round
the corner
I was not expecting you
to come into the open
into the light

And now
you’re there
I’m beguiled
like always
you consume me
with that crazy
cobalt tie,
ultramarine vest,
cerulean suit,
matching teal hat and
tapping sued shoes…
Tapping, tapping, tapping
raising my veins
making my blood
look blue
like you!
You Gangster,
