Poetry

Hands And Peas
Cusco Market


Hands and peas
potatoes and carrots
soles and fingers
this for that
everyone is trading
pork chops for bananas
and everyone's
a cheater.

This for that
a shirt for a hammer
a hammer for potatoes
potatoes for a knife

a knife for a trout
a trout for a backrub
a backrub for a washing machine
a washing machine
will get you laid
and getting laid is like a potato.
