Wondrous is the word that best describes a hat
gone missing in a commuter train wreck
identifying marks include a shit-eating grin
Wall Street Journal ink on the fingertips
they are practically tattoos

I worked there the summer before
they hired the guy who killed and buried those itinerants
trying to get past the crime scene tape
to see if they had my Rock N Roll Animal CD in the lost & found

I heard all about your conspiracy theories
on public access television
I laughed long and loud
you looked so shrunken behind the podium
I couldn't help but think you were onto something
