I Saw You Wearing Yesterday’s Get-Up

We kissed under a vain and tawdry sky.

Oh, Lord, grant me a gimmick
Because I might be in trouble.

Anyway, there is a dangle in my chest.

Something quick and easy,
Something sure-fire.
Something that sells.
I have thus far failed in my professional aspirations.

Something that cleans up after itself.

Oh, Lord, grant me a gimmick
like Garbage Pail Kids
or Yahtzee.
Spiderman 5: Falldown Kitchen Sink
A long-legged style of walking.

Lord, grant me the right questions
Not to ask.
