 Pontificating on the Mississippi 

These days I find
my money
often lies
on the mud swole banks of the Mississippi 
river in bags soaked with black oil and bolts I'm found terminating powerhouse controls isophase links and a steady hand to hot glue steel makes the best lover you know it's true

throwing out nets 
for 12 hour shifts
and baby you 
because I don't behave well

navigate well 
this sea wall
this American river 

what's assumed you should know
ain't always so
start with a handicap 
and told it doesn't matter
the love has to be real
I'm not a social climber
fuck, my love is real
and my enemies are too
