Elegy (For Gina J)

oh my baby likes to shoot her heroin
she ties a bow and shoots her arrow in
oh my baby gets so high, her feet touch the sky
don't know why or how she gonna pay her rent
in the morning, just before the dawn
without warning or turning the light on
just as long as it takes
just before day breaks
in the morning when she wakes up I'll be gone
