the little girls skipt school


  the little girls skipt school
  and hung around downtown
  dressed like little orphans
  huncht in corners, singing
  " xs'cuse me, sir. spare sm change?
  a quarter for a joke
  panning enough for smokes and hot chocolate
  n maybe sm gum. n maybe sm Rambo stickers





  Then passed the suede pimp
  brass chains and silver
  earrings for the look on his face
  and leaving like a lover

  Then came the gypsy girls
  black lace and sneakers
  with hair that hangs like ornaments
  to hide their curious glances
