act dumb / “is jojo home? / got weeds /// need hoe.”

           po-po say / “jojo don’t live here no mō //  you get ghost // ‘cause
this crack-house is closed /// & you cain’t scō.” 

            / “thank you ossifer.”  

            / then i go // i be gonna-git-gone!! //                    two dōs down /
live joe j. snow. //                                   booyah! . . . i scō!!          

            / get high as hell    /// fuck damn po-po! /       an’ they ‘maginary
