“Peaches and Ham,” he calls us

and we laugh 

while he whistles “Chuck E’s in Love” with the juke box
like he’s Mr. Coolsville

and we laugh some mo

What the hell is a shoop coupe anyways?
Skinny-assed white girl singin’

He say, “different song ladies” 
—he say ladies like we was some kinda special

and we laugh some mo
Johnny-come-marchin-home-boy, war’s over
“got time to spend in Daleville,” he say
“need somebody to spend it with” 

and we laugh some mo

Carla and me

her old man on de-ploy
mine due back any day
three tours that man and I know he been dippin’
a woman get lonesome too, don’t ya know it?

we just lookin’ for some laughs

“So Johnny...
what ya got, little boy?”

and we laugh some mo

He say, “Got the need for some peaches and ham!”

and we laugh some mo
—we was all friends now

Left the joint
it was still daylight—we was there right past first feedin’
forgot my babies
forgot my old man too

Johnny, he come with us to the parkin’ lot
starts slidin’ down the bases
lookin’ for the easy spaces

I’s reachin’ for the door handle on Carla’s Camaro
it ain’t there...ummm, unh, somethin’ sure feels good

and I laugh some mo

Oh yeah, almost forgot, Carla’s havin’ a bad orange-hair black-root day

we already laugh about that

“WATCH OUT!” she hollers
by the time I turn around
ain’t no mo Johnny 

“Woman!”  “You made me bust my best pool cue!”


 “ Aw suga, I’s so happy to see you...that guy, he was...”

but I seen the fire in Henry’s eyes and starts thinkin’ ...this ain’t no good!”

Carla, she say, “Heeeeeeeeey, Henry…..wan some peaches and ham?”

and we laugh some mo

poor Johnny
