Casting Couch

“I love Los Angeles. I love Hollywood. They’re beautiful.
Everybody’s plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic.” ~ Andy Warhol


Sit on my chair, legs crossed,

arms out, sofa shout,

how good are you, do you drink cocktails at

the Buddha Bar,

so I am good enough to sleep with

not good enough to play with,

sit on my chair with arms crossed,

lets out, don’t shout,

photos out, lasting sights of too much revolving anger on stand up mics,

so, I am good enough to sleep with, not good enough to play with

at the Buddha Bar,

cocktails, pills and baby you don’t know where you think you’re going to go, snow, ground up blue bells on sanctioned play grounds,

and so, I am good enough to sleep with, not good enough to play with

at the Buddha Bar.
