PAINTINGS: Stakeout Series 25-28

(25)

Not yet quite ready for the dinner party
Funnel over the transom
JESUS HELP ME NOW
Dump truck in my parking space
                Hey bitch don’t follow so close
                               Watch her as she sucks on the popsicle

(26)

Smokin’ with the wheels turned down
Dangerous mounds of hot mud ahead
YOU BETTER GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES
Her old boyfriend peeks into the mail slot
                She says you gotta to be kidding me
                               Watch her as she turns up the volume

(27)

Fields with target practice blot out other memories
Little mitts made of leather and oiled daily
FRIGGIN RELATIVES: STAGE THE BARBEQUE!
This shirt’s too small, send it back, get my money
                Their overheated engine stalls in traffic
                               Watch her as she licks her lips again

(28)

No sweat sister, you can come anytime
Desert tries to abolish the last trace of violet
CAN’T HELP IT     CAN”T GET THERE
Rolling down the rickety lot, doors open
                Blammmmm   it’s happening again
                               Watch her as she turns to say I didn’t mean it
