three threes

three threes, and something seems
somewhat blessed.
and i chalk the plastic on the tip of the stick,
and sometimes the eight ball comes back to the cue side,
which is a funny thing for an eight ball to do.

once there was this hustler guy
came in, from jersey,and one from pennsylvania.
one taught me a couple of things,
and one said we should go on the road.

i considered this for a few minutes,
saw my life stretch out beyond me,
(my new life as a pool hustler)
and there were divey bars, and glossy casinos,
and lots and lots of road.

those were nice, those few minutes.
