ALAS, IN WANDERLAND, SEA CZAR CITY, VOL.6, PAGE 8

14 Dec

I’ve known Heaven since she was just a cloud.

Her old man had been my young friend.

Id’ve done anything for Pete Skates.

He was my Nero.

Captain of the hooky team and the rebating team.

Handy in a grapple and smart as a quip.

Pete married Laurel Lie, the Home Slumming Colleen and they had Heaven.

Then somehow it all went to Nell.

Pete started hitting the throttle and one day he was just gone.

Thats why my flesh did the Australian crawl that night when I picked up the phone.

“Packit, its me Packit, its Pete, Pete Skates!

I’m with a bunch of bums  on the Bindlestiff, in the harbour.”
