IN THE CITY NO ONE CARES
They dragged a woman out of the bar
last night
Speaking Spanish and laughing and flailing
as they pulled her to the door
The drinkers barely looked up
from their drinks
I asked Beanie why they
threw her out
"The usual shit," he said
I don't know what the usual shit is
but I don't think he felt like explaining
The truth is I was only making
conversation
I already can't remember
what she looked like
