VALENCIA STREET, LATE AT NIGHT

Valencia Street, late at night.
I just looked at myself in the mirror.
I had some huevos con cocino
And the cocino and the Spanish rice
Were a little old
But I'm not sick yet
And I left a dollar tip.

A hooker with tired tits
And a grim smile
Looks at me like I was trash
And there's a hole in her fishnet skirt
A world could slip through.

Two brothers talking
Don't want to mess with me
And a pretty little tea set
In a funky window
With one saucer broken in three pieces
Reminds me of the change I've given away
And all the change I've asked for.

Virginia Frost
