Gum On Your Soul (SIC) Part Two

The Chewing Gum Kid said it,
it's a like a bit of gum on the soul of your shoe
getting dirtier the further your walk
then the sole comes off altogether
not once but twice
it bookends the week in tableaus of drunken walks down cobblestones streets
soulless
the 2nd time
at Abstand
I saw the sole in the hand of the lead singer of a swedish hardcore band
he waves it like a dismembered hand in a bad joke
need a hand mate?
from where I was leaning, struggling to stand
the gum looked black
black and withered flattened by the pressure of all the days spent under the foot.
