BACK IN TOWN

A Renega between Alexis K. Rotella and ai li
Los Gatos, California and London
20 - 27 February 1997

 

 

You're back in town           finding out from someone else

matching bedroom slippers in his briefcase

at dinner he stares into space           smiling

her mother's goulash for 'uncle'

secret post office box           finding his will

the scented letter with a foreign stamp

snapshot           she looks like a slut

a tits man           the private investigator

the pedophilia charges        he swears they're not true

behind the trash           bloodstained underwear
