The Last Night

February 4, 2009

I take a shower –

Half an hour.


I go to work –

I hate that jerk.


I stay in school –

A willing fool.


I drink a lot –

My liver’s rot.


I see the neighbor –

She seems my flavor.


I’m out on my ass –

My ex is crass.


I hear the night –

A loner’s delight.


I phone my mom –

A ticking bomb.


I find a spot –

I get a cot.


I pay the rent –

My world is spent.


I stay up late –



I lift a pen –

Like other men.


I feel my sins –

My future dims.


I flip the light –

It helps tonight.


I begin to work –

I begin to work.
