Hey baby

i want me
a
strong woman

one who can fire
a
pistol from the get a way
car

look mean in a dress
quip
a line while
the
car is losing control
knowing
we both gotta
jump

i want
a
woman who
can burn up the sheets
just
by
laying in them

smoke a cigarette and
then ask
what the next score
is

sit with just
a
smile on her face
while she’s
cleaning that
gun
and asking
that above
question

hey baby –

whatcha doing tonight?
