the mob stole our porn
by Francine DuBois

and used it to safely pack
their tommy (not hilfiger) guns in violin cases.
they fit as snugly as the white gloves mom wore
to elementary school in the fifties.

al capone once had dinner with the inventor of bubble wrap
and mentioned the problems of wrapping guns in them.
snaps and pops are not sounds one wants to hear
while handling loaded firearms. after a brief discussion of
surface tension, the main course arrived and all was forgotten
over the salisbury steak.

besides, al thought later, it was always nice to wrap
miss january around guns. freud would understand.
