First Trip To The Tank

6.24.94 early AM
Montclair, NJ

Approximately 14 to 15 feet from my friend’s parent’s house..

Lay back catatonic
In the middle of the street

When up on us
roll the Montclair

Cop asked me
“Whad-ya take boy?”
I say “How d fuck should I know?”

They asked my underage friend
She could only say:


[Pop Quiz: What drug were we on?]

Hid my weed behind a bush
& was suddenly like:


That bush in actuality
Turned out to be the cop’s
Big Toe!!

    Yes yes yes… Ahhhh the unmistakable sinch of the Montclair polieces veritable dragnet of wonders. I TOO was once thrown into the tank in that very town! It was a bright evening on memorial day in ’99. I just finished dropping of my last friend on a schwilly tobagin wride back home. As I was greezin’ the veritable corner of my demize, I saw (shortly after) cop lights, illuminating a dweezy sunrize of apathetic anxioty in my rear view. I then proceeded to rooool down mee windee and wait for the man (very professionally, with visions of jedi mind tricks on the horizon). he approached and began talking, shortly after, which, he asked me to step out of the vehicle. I got out and did not pass one of the few tests he gave me (I think it was the one with the eyes closed, face toward the skye, on one leg touching the nose). He then cuffed me and put me in the back of the cruiser. I proceeded to feel uneasy on the ride home and pucked into my own mouth. And with the mighty fury of the winds and ocean, pushed that corrosive gravy treat back down like eating chili. Yes, it emitted a mild spirt onto my shirt, but, I hope it was not too much to be noticed. After reaching the station, they put me into a tank, and called my pops. I think I gave them the number caus I didn’t want to be in there all night and I figured they would find out eventually. Well, pops arrived in all shame and glory wearing pants, shoes and a robe(like hotel style robe) and bailed my 21 year old ass out. Aw geeze
