Poem Taken from "At Home on the Edge©" - A collection of Poems

 

BLUES
 
Blue blues
Dark with clouds of grey,
Hover over long nights,
And slow, creeping days.
Bluest blues
Blinding sad,
Beat heavy on my heart
Like an old punching bag.
I’m getting too old to
Weather them blows.
Mean blues
Beat me senseless,
No use fighting no more.
My eyes is black.
My lips are bust.
Turned my last trick for blues
Lying down in the dust.
Can’t blame it on my man
Or the hard times I had,
Just got the mark of the blues
Sitting on my forehead.

Although there are some who are truly victims out there, the biggest majority, by far, are there because they want to, no matter how many excuses sofiety tends to give them . . . This is fact . . . Straight from a former street person . . .

Themes range from poverty to the ephemeral beauty of a sun-dappled pond, settings from post-Katrina New Orleans, a freshman dorm at a Missouri college, a sleet-slick city street th..
