Fifty cents a lucy
Fifty cents to unloose the self
Is to unloose
That which may be lost
Unlawfully leased
Inarticulately loused
(See: the black comb)
And later lying laying
Is it which
To lie to lay
The indirect object is which
Which is the indirect object
The lucy itself
To live among those
Is to live unlonesomely
