~Five Points~


~Five Points~

~we were younger than men~
~never quite boyz~
~down there in Denver~
~they called these black streets~
~Five Points~
~because there was~
~a convergence~
~a star~
~the five points of them~
~a Jesus Saves neon light~
~night~

~soup kitchen & after-hours joints~
~“wha’ d’ya want”~
~“white boys, c’mere”~
~“lookin’ for some girls”~
~“little bit o’ action”~
~there were two hungry whores~
~an Indian & a black one~
~my brother ‘n I bought ‘em restaurant food~
~three meals each~
~& they sent us on home~
