1987 ford mustang with a FOR SALE sign in the rear window

and the skinny girl who
gets out of it

the price of a pack of cigarettes
(or the name of a baby
who will never know her father

who will be dead before
his fifth birthday)
and what she does is smile and ask
if you're interested

says she needs twenty bucks

says the kid probably
won't even wake up

and the only thing you
know how to be is human
