NICE GUY IN A CRUMBY TOWN

by on October 20, 2017 :: 0 comments

Circumstances force me to be unpleasant
sometimes
it leads to a low ebb
…the tides of good thought recede
leaving their naked sand
full of crabs and crawly vermin

where the soul comes to bury love
…watch TV instead
of looking out toward the streets and their gardens,
stuff cigarettes and food
by the load
to manage better what vagrant daydreams
still linger
in an unconscious eye
which would see all things
as beautiful!

editors note:

When within renders none, be seen as such by association. Nice guys, all. – mh clay
