Bad Cats By K.W. Peery

Kosher
Kush
on a
Coltrane
night...
just eatin'
my smoke
in the
blue
moonlight...

There's a
cone top
two slat
in clearspring
green...
next
to Mama's
old sewin'
machine...

It's
already
Autumn
n' this
flannel
feels good...
sippin'
three fingers
Blanton's
from some
charred
oak wood...

Been ridin'
big waves
in this
blue livin'
room...
where all
the bad
cats jam...
then
leave
too
soon
