drink with me (ruthie)

drink with me (ruthie) – 1920s mugshot – 09/11/2022

drink with me
friends

come
take a drink

the swine
will come shave you
soon enough

drink with me
walking
a life
on the streets

sing
a loud song
to
the road

and drink
to the lice
and the fleas and
the flies

drink
to the stink
of each morning

drink
till they come
then
we’ll sleep
in clean beds

but until then
let’s drink up
this song
