Abbey Road
jezkuh

This guy is lying
 1
When he says his name is Joe
 2
 
 
We’re sitting at a table
 3
By the fire and
 4
Tonight it's the weather and
 5
Not me
 6
Who's cold
 7
 
 
To the left
 8
A woman with short wavy hair
 9
She’s missing something
 10
A warm body in her bed
 11
 
 
The lights go on
 12
Joe asks for a smoke
 13
“What are you doing here?” I wonder
 14
He doesn’t know
 15
 
 
He tells me he’s from Chicago
 16
Runs a limousine company or something
 17
He’s out here in Los Angeles to look at a stretch Hummer
 18
I ask him what color
 19
 
 
I mention
 20
Last time I was in one
 21
“It felt like a club inside that thing.”
 22
Girls in short dresses
 23
Grey Goose
 24
Soda
 25
And a splash of something pink
 26
 
 
He’s not listening
 27
He’s wondering the same thing
 28
 
 
“My friends…” I tell him
 29
Well, maybe for me
 30
He nods and says
 31
“You’re curious.”
 32
 
 
Well, obviously
