from Tonight This Is Our Last Song

There goes a man who loves his parents. Tell the people.

What the cops aren’t supposed to do—entrapment née sting.

A long list. The commissioner says blindness, hot item.

Laptops have been a hot item for theft since their invention.

Jagged cut in half, and half my heart is under a hood.

The rest yelling through the wall. Being a bad neighbor.

You want to get paid and I know you were taught that.

He hosted the parties, he didn’t really party. He was busy.
