the stale scent of half-man
and tobacco confetti
cling to the crevices of stained, cracked paint
with each inhalation
a toxic two-step
he exhaled as my tears spilled forth
I fumble to find the misplaced lighter
it's dark now and there are no matches to strike
just
stolen Dreams
stolen Self-Worth
and a
stolen Soul.
stub-toed
narcoleptic
cockeyed gargoyle
tattooed on the underbelly
of my Life's affliction.
