Welcome to the American Night


where dogs bark and cats meow

while fat white men try for something sweet

pieces of meat - wrecked perfumed hell

something down and dirty, gritty, sand in your eyes

face in the wind - outside of town someplace near

a summer carnival, a warm tavern on a wintry street

crowds and strangers, drifters and sailors - made to be

a lover's ring - a kiss engulfing eyes - or discarded & alone

welcome to the American night where fancies are fed -

love & hatred bred together w/ the passing dreams of infancy
