#88 (seven stops)

between disgust

and compassion

watching him sway

and spray

his heavy perfume

of sweat and booze

the girls

with the pigtails

bags full of trash

disguised as dresses


of fake silver

and fake smiles

wrinkling pink noses

not fake


the guy

with the wavy

black mane

changing seats

in a  rush

one hundred and seventy

strokes of the brush

to tame it

and keep it

that shiny

I guess

and still

my brother

always one bottle

to kill

the only thing

he used to remember





his nose

glowed like

Rudolph met Tina

in her usual demeanour

and high as a kite

she was


but bright
