Maria tells me, “He’s a chancre sore in my life.
He’s probably with some other woman anyway.
I gotta get outta this depression
I put on 20 more pounds I can’t seem to shed
Maybe I’ll just suicide out”
She’s sobbing and she’s crazy.
“He’s not home yet and it’s half past ten.

He said he’d be here at five.” God damn!
What a scene! She’s screamin’ at him.
He’s drinkin heavy. Tells her, “Get Lost!”
She finally gets him out the bar door,
home to the waiting bed.
“He has a hard on,” she cries,
“but he won’t fuck me.”

Peter says, “It’s the way Maria’s shaped by nature or fate.”
“Look at those two,” I say to her, “playing with their fruits.
That guy with that girl got his hand on the other girl’s butt.”
“She’s just no good,” Maria says, mad, hands on her hips.
“She’s messing with some other girl’s man.”

I say “You just feel bad cause you’re thinking
of your man messing with some other woman.”
“Maybe I’ll just go for a pedicure,” she says,
“get my hair blown out straight. I wanna lose that 20 pounds.
I’m so upset I sold my gold watch for 5 bucks worth of crack
Maybe I’ll just suicide out.”

Maria goes in my room. She uses the phone
All private like in hope and pain,
Almost like a prayer
“Write about me,” she says,
“bout me and my man.

We’re talking just like poetry, you know.”
“Yes, I know. It’s all poetry you know.
Your outfit’s perfect, coordinated so well.”
“Thank you very much.
I think I’ll have another go.
Or maybe I’ll just suicide out”

Wow this was very deep but if someone is suicidal for real and reads this, they might do it!! This is excellent but should be with a ending of survival and not suicidal. I have a suicidal poem too my friend but it ends on why should I stay here and why i am not going out like that. This was very deep and i didn't know you had so many poems. I have to get your book as i will be in manhattan next week. This was very good but I don't want anyone to give up on life because i know there is a better way and you and i know that.

An excellent wrire Joy
I know she a friend
But she'll calling out for help
And if it's just a write
Then it's great just the same
I enjoyed it

William ......Peace & Love
