59th chorus Mexico City Blues - Kerouac

59th chorus

then i always manage to get
my weekly check on monday
pay my rent, get my laundry
out, always have enough
junk to last a coupla days

have to buy a couple needles
tomorrow, feels like
shovin a nail in me

just like shovin a nail in me
goddamn - cough -

for the first time in my life
i pinched the skin
and pushed the needle in
and the skin pinched together
and the needle stuck right out
and i shot in and out
goofed half my whole shot
on the floor-
took another one-
nothin a junkey likes better
than sittin quietly with a new shot
and knows tomorrow's plenty more
