I saw an old friend today,
that used to be……..
pale & thin, troubled long, by
a demanding spouse….. dying
living in dust & dark, sent out each day
to lowly scouring streets, butts for him to puff,
he sat ordering, from his chair,
his face slowly melting off the bone,
He died quickly… as she found another.
Sunny and tanned, sparkling like the sun on a warm summer day
new found love, new found life
hair, grey to blonde.
No more dust & dark….
Dedicated to my friend Joanie
