Jagged Edges




rorschach blob lookalike
smeared across sheet of yellowed paper

found in old no handles scratched up desk

with broken number 2 pencil

drawer missing - hunchbacked 

crinkled bottom drawer liner

hadn’t seen the light of day in eclipses

--nobody’s looked at or even tried to figure out

some things just don’t have an answer of what for 

some things don’t wanna be figured out 

saying leave me alone- just leave me alone 

in tired dispirited voices

broken bottle in the weeds, jagged edges-- nobody picks up

flattened cans and bottle caps

what’s the difference? ain’t no big thing

hang out at the bar on the corner

jukebox 80’s soundtrack

drinking guaranteed headache cheap beer

watching peach bowl a t l

post depressive after christmas blues season

there’s got to be a reason

what’s the point to all of this

some things just don’t have an answer of what for
