A Response to Mule Variations

Track 2, Variation 1
from Black Market Baby

Needle in a diamond, swank, swinging out. There in the rough- (y)our eyes. (Little light bulbs.) My cold tongue sticking to you like a fingerprint. A cowbells. A map under magnification that turns out to be a fracture. Your bags of whiskey can't keep me from calling you. Aphrodite. Expensive. Stolen.
