late at night

wandering home across the city

& her feet hurt her

like I’m going to carry that load

we stop frequently

to listen to her moans

her to rub those feet

& she sees the corner boys

falls quick into line behind

lets just get through eh?

the boys have nothing else on

though they stop to watch as we slop by

make muttered noises & laughs

she leans in whispers please keep going

& there is a time to be tough

hand out the stare em down looks

but these were just bored past bedtime boys

with nothing else to spend time on

its ok baby I say in her ear

not far to go & lift her body some

its time to get on home

just a few more steps

& we can take the weight off

have a sip something fine
