Michael Ondaatje, “The Collected Works of Billy the Kid”

Crouching in the 5 minute dark
can smell him smell that mule sweat
that stink need a shotgun
for a searchlight to his corner

Garrett? I aint love-worn
torn aint blue I’m waiting
smelling you across the room
to kill you Garrett going
to take you from the knee up
leave me    my dark   AMATEUR!
