Tracers (For Violet)

No ulterior motives, hidden agendas or swamp coolers dangled over our heads
She’s as real as they come like black licorice or an antecedent disqualified, but not yet disproven
We will go into the desert wearing nothing, but our Charlie Don't Surf tee-shirts

Got hooked on heroin because that’s what chicks like her do when they grow bored and worn down by life’s ironies and unmapped mysteries
Einstein’s a genius as was Tesla and Churchill if you focus on their deeds and not their follies
Unlocking Violet’s vault out of the question until you sacrifice everything including your secretive persona

Time to lean against the wall and pee
This sciatica will be the death of me
Once we’re in close proximity I promise to pick up all of my pieces and do my best to put myself back together again like Charles Bronson did years after he had a Death Wish and went the way of a cancerous tumor with a dollop of Alzheimer's on top for good measure
