Max & Mat at Torrey Pines State Beach May 14, 2005
Just across 110th Street

pimps trying to be mischievous or sweet,

and here is a sandwich and suddenly

the beautiful edge I was tying

to running on a treadmill

will not reply.

We serve King William out here


We serve King William out here

during this war to end your knowledge.

Where the fort once stood

there now is a smoking rubbish

heap of men women and children.

I'm Captain Blood and I've ordered

your crew to take to the boats.

Dig? Or shall I spell it out?

It's a piece of cheese -

a fucking piece of cheese,

a blanched face.

Their glances grew in insolence, almost.

IN THE SERVICE OF KING WILLIAM

this ship is now virtually a unit

of the ignorance I could gladly have forgotten.

ACTUALLY, I find you all tiresome, said Captain Blood,

and he looked down with a glow

that said, THIS REIMBURSEMENT WILL TRUSS

me up like no other fowl,

having until now observed all of

the odd particulars.
