Fondling a treatment brochure
as if fondling yourself

No spotlight on no freebird
no shirt off in no yard

Like boring is a business & you

Each prison breaks to be alone

Hustling the vein doctor
as if hustling yourself

We can repeat this as long
as it fakes

Repeat this like the sound
of one hand shaking

unechoed in a see-through stall
