Lilleve
unknown

had a friend named lilleve
 1
she was a real ying yang bitch
 2
chewed her preacher’s ass once
 3
when she caught him
 4
drinking in the church parking lot
 5
but lord how she
 6
                                   loved me
 7
 
 
shared chicory coffee,
 8
stories
 9
about the boys
 10
of 1964,
 11
about being real
 12
and not hiding
 13
behind bottles of booze
 14
                                 and
 15
 
 
damn, she’d tell me
 16
she loved me and kiss me right
 17
on my lips, in the daylight
 18
every time we said goodbye
