Taste of champagne

†  
One of my girls †  
got talking to me tonight †
†  
asking if ever thought †  
about going back †  
in the game, †
†  
it was a †  
good question †  
but she was always †  
a hard hitter in †  
that way †
†  
I said things change †
my lovely, †  
†  
situations pull us †  
in all kinds of †  
directions †
†  
and people †  
like us evolve †
into what we †
are born to do †
†  
I kept my response †  
to that alone; †
† †
knowing she †  
pulled herself out †  
from disaster by †  
making it her †  
entire career †
†  
†  
and fuck do I †
love her dearly †
for it and wish †  
nothing but †  
happiness. †
†  
†  
In my truthfulness †  
it aint exactly the same †
as it was back then †
†  
where you could †  
easily wrangle two †  
fifty in exhange †  
for a couple of †  
feet pictures †
†  
or if you're bold †
enough, squeeze †  
between five or †  
five-fifty for †  
a good solo †  
†  
cause you're †  
a young cat †  
with little †  
to lose, †
†  
I don't think †  
I need to explain †
how much more †
I squeezed out †  
of people †  
†  
who demanded †
an entire circus †  
for a service †
†  
but money was †
flowing more fluid †
around then, †
†  
everybody †  
has latched †  
onto this kind †  
of work now †
†  
people often †
don't see it as craft †
but I believe it's
unappreciated †  
kind of art †
†  
there are †  
people out there †  
who master it well, †
make careers out †  
of these rituals †
just like my †  
girl did †
†  
got herself †  
a house last year †
but I know the †
moves she took †
to finally get †
there, †
†  
back then †  
it was a mean †  
to an end †  
for me †
†  
sure, I had †
my moments †  
of champagne †  
fucking glory †  
†  
not getting myself †  
mad but taking †  
everything †  
I could, †
†  
these days †
I move different †
to help other †
people †
†  
I want them to †
taste champagne †  
glory I once did †
years ago, †
†  
knowing how †
it feels having †  
very little to †  
call your †  
own. †
