Monkeys & Cocaine

he was always shirtless
and wore an eyepatch

tattooed across his stomach
in shitty old-
english script

happy to spin
a wild yarn about some
eating his eye
from its socket

while passed
out drunk on a beach
in Costa Rica

waking up with
one eye
a bad tattoo and
an even worse

but it was all a lie

his eyeball
got plucked out in
a barfight
one night down
in New

and his tattoo
done in the kitchen
of a shady friend
in exchange
for a gram of cain
