“The Meter Is Running…” by L. K. Thayer

as the hip get hipper
and the lines grow deeper
time creeps closer
breathing
down my neck

I haven’t seen Jack
since he fetched
a pail of water
and I keep getting
thirsty
for someone
to get me

and the clock
keeps tick-talking
and will somebody
please
call me a taxi
because
I swear…
the beat of the street
goes on and on
but
New York
will never
be the same
again right

and
it’s just wrong
