Sing me a dirty song.
Make me laugh.

I rarely gambled—
well, only seven days a week.
I was as virtuous as a gentleman need be—
more or less.
I swore little; whored no more than once—
every fifteen minutes.
I paid my debts—
Three or four times.

I lived well.
Maybe I did forget what the inside of a church looks like.  5
No matter.
Go ahead, call in my marker.
I repent.

I lived well.
Maybe I did forget.
