A gangster falls in love with weakness

The pistol cries to take over the city
In a safe lives a mansion
A thief thanks the conductor
A mask lies for manners
Daisies are found in an oven
I brandish a one way ticket
Laughter wants my mistakes
His power drops off the balcony
And knowledge wants nothing but to watch a film
About desire.
