lived
the life

you have to hand it to him.

lost that
cottage on the
santa monica beach

to the sharks.

the sharks always win.
the sharks built this ******.

richmond
addicted to ****** and the poem.

sharks
don’t understand poems.

although
some sharks
are addicted to ******

they will
never get

the poem.

richmond
evicted and homeless
retired to a small room.

the
poem
had dried
up

like a
discarded
apple
core.

fruit
no more.

empty
toothless
abandoned

steve richmond died.

no pilgrimages
to his grave.

in the darkness of the sycamore tree

the sharks
count stacks of money.

this is
how they got

judas
too.
