broke as

I’ll tell you how we did it

though we were always

broke as last weeks pay

hunting for anything that moved

could become prey

we hadn’t the money

buy a bottle to go to the party

wandering the streets

we’d find another party in progress

door open porch lights on

pick up an empty cup bottle laying around

use that as cover

go in head to the kitchen

while the drunks danced in the living room

music loud lights off & fumbling

pick up a bottle or two quick as we could

head out to the party we were invited to

not that they wanted us there either

but now we had the entrance fee

& the night was ours

again
