PAD

November 7, 2014

fresh flowers in a front room work,

first look inside, coming in/

from work.

it sets the tone, sits you down/

for real work.

near a bright lamp, black beer,

white/ blank/ empty,  near,

pad.

where a sharp pen pokes it open

& the joke’s on

.

words unspoken.

.

.

.

It’s been so long

since it’s been   leaning on the brakes/

and all the blue smoke & smell

are well gone.

.
