Is it the sun straight up
or the rain,
or the bourbon before me?
I sin.
I watch love end.
She gets on the bus, goes
I did not know for good.
A city full of clouds.
Hands empty
save for guns.
What to do but war?
Look closely:
can you see the living
for the dead?
Some have more
than they need.
Good for them.
Nothing’s like it was?
Only death’s the same?
