White candy bars
and whistling car sounds
on a hill in the park
down the street
from Lorraine's.

She comes
whimpering on the grass
a bedtime story.

Moments after
contemplating the rain.

Although I say it myself, I think this is one of my best snipkus.

It's both a literary and cinematic reference, Lady Bunny. I wasn't expecting you to get it.

Jo Cairo / a poem by Will Dockery

White candy bars
and whistling car sounds
on a hill in the park from Lorrain's
she comes whimpering on the grass
a bedtime story
moments after contemplating the rain.

And blonde blue jeans
by a babbling stream
lady cabdriver just like saxo fountain
didn't have the recollection after
eating her p***y for a ride
of her name.

There'd been a murder in the park
and I was paranoid
walking across from Lorrain's street
through the park
to the street on the other side
to her boarding house home.

The rain clouds grew darker
pangs of regret
where was that roller-skating copper-eyed
with her smile
and long blonde hair tied back w/ headband
and a little groan as she came.

-Will Dockery 5-5-83

No, you dolt -- the gay lame was my asking you whether he smelled like chypre or gardenias.

PJR was merely explaining it to you.

IIRC, I was explaining it to Plod.

I know that explaining it to Dreckery would have been a complete waste
of time.

But there's still a 0.001% chance that Plod is capable of
understanding something, if the something is expressed simply enough.
