Ovis

Updated: Mar 1

Ovis held a stately downtown business

and he took on debt to protect his nest


Reginald Quarter’s my name, if you’d like

if you seek the counter, I rip the feit


breaching the law found Ovis behind bars

bleaching their blood from the dry drapery


Henderson, north lies our getaway car

Quarter tails the foliate to spot Avery


Ovis the great proclaims his final wish

clock’s gone purple, I am less than a cent


Henderson steps up to line, one last dish

take a rest, the thrill was not enough rent


signs became like eyes on black boulevards

leaves falling from the money tree like cards
