Friday Noir: Good and Permanent

Temptation grows like a flower, don’t it?

You get a thought about something, and man, it just rises up in your mind.

You think, you think, you think….

Yeah, we can make this happen.

It’ll be a quick little score.

In and out. Nothin’ too it.


Yeah, there’s something to it.

Something you didn’t plan on.

The nobody who walks in, wantin’ to be hero.

That other alarm.

The engine that won’t turn over,

Leaving you banging your palms on the wheel in frustration.

Next thing you know…

You’re standing in this shotgun shack behind jagged glass, iron pulled…

Waiting to see what happens next,

Hopin’, whatever it is, it ain’t good and permanent.

Yeah, temptation grows alright…..

Like a weed.
