there was nothing

1              butts

 

There was nothing left to live for. I walked

home from the dog tracks with a few bucks

more than when I got there and it meant

approximately, nothing; at all: alcohol

and cigarettes; some debt, or fritting it

on necessities. But, what! I’m as dry

as a spent cock and I have everything

I need, and nothing I want.

Love comes easy to me but there’s

always some cunt that wants more,

to stitch me up. Reader,

 

some nights I’ve nothing left, to give;

and the days are the same. The weight

of 5 decades is on my head.

 

But I still look good. It’s true. Ach,

it’s the drink you think. So?

do I. Well,

  1. That bitter cud of self-reflection….nicely chewed over, Marco, I love that ‘weight of 5 decades’, man, and it doesn’t get lighter, does it!
