Loose Change

Catch a buzz with your cottonmouth eyes, hear the seabirds shout for quarters,

as the slate of last night’s inebriated tour is wiped clean like a kid after cake.

See the pinball lights on the eastern shore as you crack a penny arcade smile,

and cut through the scuzz of this awkward blind date with “come over to my place awhile”.

It’s a honky-tonk plastic one night stand, double nickels ‘til your dough rises.

Convenience-store slop, jelly-roll time.  You steppin’ out for a smoke? Hey, it’s your dime.
