Regretting Here

This morning I woke up here,
thinking I’d rather not be.
Nowhere to go
except work
as a dirty mongrel.

I bow with the man
in camouflage hat,
crooked cig,
crooked sun,
power truck.

Have no courage.

Search for redeeming energy.
Life is all heavy black.

    Hmm, sounds familiar. Let me know if you find any of that redeeming energy.

      Thank you for commenting. When I find it, I think it is from people who understand. I look every day.
