Too many times

sign says ANY KINDNESS
cardboard calling
good morning
like this concussion—
xxxI’ve just come around
the corner
of my ninth life
time’s up
xxxI’m pretty sure
or I’ll be pretty sure
next time.
yeah. I’ve just
wheeled around the edge
steeled for the fall
by a few too many glasses
I’ll catch this next time
pull myself up
clutching the same sign—
and wishing I could take it back
last time.
