I'm inside a goodfella's neighborhood bar,
You must login to vote
A place where they all know what each other are.
Soldiers stand at sides of suits made by fitting.
Not Sid's "My Way"- a friend of ours is singing.
Tony "two fingers" is still taking action.
Sweet Gina lingers, giving distractions.
"Look who's back!"
"We was worried ya got clipped."
"Hey, how you doin'?"
"Forget about it."
"Stephanie, bring us more fruit and fresh cheese..
With another round, add anisette, please."
I return smile to Lisa, once-blinking-
Yellow from street like a candle bulb winking.
Paulie takes coffee to Feds in grey Ford.
It keeps copesetic lukewarm accord.
Everything's fine in this world for tonight.
Don't have to wake-up alone, I just might.
Vinny's is festive, my lamp's turned down low,
At table with view of who's "gotta go..

below the subliminal
deep within manipulation
that's where tr^th resides
