Are you with me on this people?

The man with the woman head
Polynesian wallpaper made the face stand out
A mixture of oriental and early vaudeville jazz poofter
Forming a hard, beetle-like triangular chin much like a praying mantis
Smoky razor-cut, low on the ear neck profile
The face the color of a nicotine-stained hand
Dark circles collected under the wrinkled, folded eyes
Map-like from too much turquoise eyepaint
He showed his old tongue through ill-fitting wooden teeth
Stained from too much opium, chipped from the years
The feet, brown wrinkles above straw loafers
A piece of cocoanut in a pink seashell caught the tongue
And knotted into thin white strings
Charcoal grey eisenhower jacket zipped into a load(?) of green ascot
A coil of ashes collected on the white-on-yellow dacs
Four slender bones with rings and nails
Endured the weight of a hard fast black rubber cigarette holder
I could just make out ace as he carried the tray and mouthed
"You cheap son of a bitch"
As a straw fell out of a coke, cartwheeled into the gutter
So this was a drive-in restaurant in hollywood
So this was a drive-in restaurant in hollywood
So this was a drive-in restaurant in hollywood
