Bett, Stephen

Another Mr. Popularity
(& for good reason)


Profoundly sad &
sweet
            alternating
joyous & sweet
(ad infinitum…)


Nice & easy


Easy is nice, too


Warm summer evenings
windows rolled down
Meth (lite) cranked up


Ride us to the town
called love
(it’s in the pink)


No tip, you know
better than that


The pleasure was always
both of ours


And don’t wait outside,
we’ll be up late
listening to it all
bleach out
white silence


Highly produced, yes
(Mr. Popularity, &
for good reason)
