half awake and still
filled with last night’s dreams
as my cigarette cries ashes
like a child finding out Santa
isn’t real or an adult finding
out that God isn’t real.
and I sit in this heat
as the wind is choked
by the heavy, Southern humidity.
I often dream of girls
I’ve loved, or tried to love
and how ugly and old
they must be now,
ignoring how ugly and
old I am now. my mind
is fading; or it may be
the pot I smoked for breakfast.
at least in my old age
I’m still getting three squares a day.
