Hustlers & Tricks—for Gerard Manley Hopkins

Hustlers & Tricks
—for Gerard Manley Hopkins


The hustler is father to the trick—
How can this be? It seems so queer
And gay and that’s the reason why

The hustlers are wild—
Suck what sense you can outta
Them before they become men

They’re more manly than—
The man who cruises the streets
For young men that can be had

They give more than they get—
Each excruciating squirt what makes
A young man a man all the way
