When Can We Expect Payment?


as soon as you pay me back
     


             interest on the car that wouldn't start



not even when i slammed its door shut



             fresh from another chase not



even when he slid his whole arm through



             the broken window smashed my head



                       against that lemon not even when i



rained red on the front seat baby bawled



                       in the rear not even



when i begged right there in your showroom



my credit's bad my feet bound



             please lend a chariot



                      anything that moves.
