Waiting for Discharge

2 Nov

Another sunrise


over I-35

hanging precariously

between life and death

5 stories up


Will it end this time

by their hand or mine?

An ill-meant

miracle cure

or miraculous


of the homeless


And I freely bleed

    I am not entirely sure what the poem suggests other than discourse (~_~) hoping all is well with you and yours

      I guess “all is well” is relative when staring out a hospital room window and wondering if you’ll live to see Christmas. But thank you.

    I can tell you’re so tired of all this, yet you continue to create. Not sure what to say except I’m here if you want an ear and I send my love. (I bet Winston will be thrilled to see you too.)
