Is it possible not to feel shme
with yr mthr’s credit card in your wallet?

not even one of those metal 1nes
but a shtty slip of plastic
so worn
you have to wrap it in a plastic bag and say “this usually works”
with a wink, like a cnt

it’s a slip of plastic
shldn’t make a difference
but you cn’t sit down with it
yrs is a George Castanza wallet

the card becomes a pea, and y’re the prncess
who can’t sleep

all night on the subway
wishing there wrn’t any stops
that the train would just fucking go
to lefferts n’ go bck

keep hustling these misrble lumps of ppl
out f the way
nder the ground
where they wn’t,
they cn’t b seen
