Chorizo & Eggs 

Shooting 8-ball
with this college puke
who keeps buying me
scotch and soda
the little fuck
that soda destroys
the taste of scotch malts
so I may as well 
be sipping metallic tainted
bathtub gin
and he says "Barfly
was a cool movie, man
you think
you could kick Bukowski's ass?"
and I do think
I could shove this cue stick
up this college boys asshole
till the tip winks like an eyeball
out his lips or
just walk away
down the back alley home
where Carmelita
a $10 mexican whore
waits to share
chorizo and eggs
while I scribble these lines
