"nina simone"

"nina simone"
after a night out by jake kilroy.

the day after i puked in an alley
with my friend smoking next to me,
i listened to nina simone all afternoon
while the rain came down like confetti
and dotted my aching face
as if i hadn't spent all night
running my mouth.
it was the week before thanksgiving
and all i could think about
was how little money i had
for christmas gifts,
but just enough
for too much
