I met her at the bus stop:
Approaching very slowly, an image appeared.
A young woman she was.
In a blink I remember her smile!
This beautiful young lady,
I remember as a dog.
She was a prostitute, plying the streets;
On hosto for about three years;
In jail four or five times.
As this young lady approached,
I realized it was Kim.
Where you been, girl, after all these years?
How's your Mom doing?
And your brothers and sisters?
Benny's away in Florida doing some rap,
And Jamal is in New York at NYU.
How long you been straight, Baby?
Yo, man, I've been clean for five years.
Get out'a here, girl, really?
At the end of the bus ride, she kissed me goodby.
