Down – TB

21 Apr

The sky or the path,
Which is going to end first?
Her head submerged into the flow of lymphs,
Flushed to the bottom with the excrement,
Flung out like semen
and hurled to the other side with the vomit.
She’s down there looking for a chunk of happiness.
There’s nothing else anyone can take from her, she knows.


Skid Row, Los Angeles.

    But she offers so much just by looking her way! Lovely words.

    So sad, I don’t know what more to say.
