who knows

Stumbling out of the bowels

of the earth at 3:40 am weighed

down by what parts of my life

I could carry I dropped

my last cigarette.

Bloody Hell!

This is great.

It still fascinates me how this

whole life thing works.

How moments- seconds-

the time it takes to nuke leftovers

can completely uproot an entire existence.

Then as I lurched down the street

I heard someone’s alarm go off.

It’s Sunday morning and someone’s

life was just beginning again as it

did yesterday just as mine was

about to end.
