Official Business
by Dennis Bernstein

The desk cop
at the first precinct
says Bobo’s Aunt Bell
is a barrel of angry bitches
in one skinny body. He says
Bell socked a cop last night,
and obstructed official police business.
Bell says the cop she clocked
had no damn business
officially grabbing her ass.
