This piece is a selection from the upcoming collection I Do Heroin on the Train Line So You Don’t Have To: A Hitchhiker’s Guide to My Galaxie
Tri-County Neighborhood by Melodie Yvonne
Drive town to town lookin’ for food to calm the drugs down in our stomachs
We take what we get in this Tri-County hole, beg, borrow, or steal, and they love it
‘Cause when we get our kicks, they get theirs too, though, they act like they’re all up above it
They all sling their shit at us so fucking much that we look like we all been out muddin’
But what can I say? We woller in it. Writhe around in the shit on our bellies
It’s easier to slither through these sleazy streets, got a better idea you can tell me
But I’m here to tell you it’s beat ‘em or join ‘em, so you better be fucking good
‘Cause you won’t walk away, nobody leaves this fucking Tri-County neighborhood
