    palm reader said ten bucks and i’ll let you read my palm 

    or twenty and i’ll read yours.

    so i gave her ten and she unfurled her grizzled paw.

    and it was all there

    i saw what it was like when she was little.
    i saw her fall in love in school.
    i saw her do her thing in college.
    and i saw her on a plane and it was going down
    people were screaming, the cart was smashing peoples arms and feet
    napkins were flying and papers and plastic cups and masks were swinging

    she said ok thats enough and took her hand back.

    and i really looked into her eyes this time
    not just the bs hi howya doing
    but the deep investigation

    and she deep investigationed me right back herself

    and said
    what if this is the best its gonna get
    not in like boo hoo
    but in like
    maybe youre seeing this

    all wrong

    and the monkey in the corner said

    ever seen anything
    all wrong b’fur

    and then he ate his foot.

    and a little fart of fire
    quickly jetted out
    of his little blue
    swimtrunks

    and i said why yes i have seen things
    all wrong b-fer

    and the head of the bear skin run said

    yr seeing everything wrong.

    and the monkey limped over to the lady
    and took the money out of her bra strap
    and waddled over to me
    and put it back into my hand,
    tipped his cap

    and tooted
    a lil flame.
