they wear out their tires (then let me go)

it is strange
to read about
myself. . .
in the newspapers

I try not
to look fir any
of their
attentions

but leslie
is a little bit
famous

and I suppose they think
that writing
about me
is a way
of writing
about him
too

they arrested me
once
when I was just looking
into a shop window

at the dresses
and clothes

that was detective
madin

he had already
worn out
a set of tires
on his police car
looking for leslie
before he settled
on me

he had to let me go
though

they always
have to let me
go
