my tribe

megan's in the bedroom
drawing and watching TV,

brian's in the garage
dreaming impossibility.

junk Man's in his bedroom
re-painting again,

jeff's banging on the backdoor
just trying to get in.

danny's on the telephone
trying to calm Jake,

adam's in the bathroom
thinking about the money he could make.

liz went to New York City
and she ain't ever coming home,

now kyrsten drives around L.A.
singing to herself alone.

judd's in his apartment
noon on Tuesday
trying not to think.

lee's lying on the couch -
he hasn't moved in five hours -
drawing humming birds
in invisible ink.

max is with Natasha
trying to make love last.

marko's with everyone
high again
floats on past.

mazzi's pouring coffee

mike's at the gym
rehabbing his blown out knee.

beau's busy wiping the bar down
watching the world get by,

you wonder who will be the last of us
to call the bet
finally say

Los Angeles - 8/02
