An encounter with a transvestite
Susie came to town last night on the 7.43. Bare of back and long of face like a banshee in a tree. From across the crowded hall, you should've seen her beck and called, "A little bit of honey has never hurt nobody. If you want me, I could take you through the steps of Rhapsody In Blue. Touch you where you want me to, yeah. Rhapsody In Blue. And on this one black night it's evil to be on your own." She said, "Are you a strong man? Do you have a strong bone? Do you eat all your favourite spice on a stick or in a cone?" I said, "I don't know baby. It's been years since I ate. I'm living all alone in a dessert I call home. I wake up every morning thinking, oh no here it goes." She said, "Let's go to a little place that I know." And all I heard, as she turned aside, was the drumbeats beating in the night. It goes. Yeah, it goes. It's three o'clock. I looked across and she was staring down at me like a bandit on a cross. And she was smiling. She said, "We can walk, or we can talk, or you can do it all over again while I watch. I like to watch". We must all head down in the direction of our fear.
