He’s A Poet Again

Posted in Uncategorized by johnsontoms on February 24, 2010

I’ve decided to write poetry again.  It helped me feel better when I didn’t, and by that math it’s time again.  Mock me all you want.  Here’s the first, originally a thought I had in my head.  It’s short, but succinct.

#1

The glass is not half full

It’s nearly empty because I drank all the whiskey

And the reflection from the booze isn’t of me

But of who I’ve become:

A 5th and a lit cigarette in the hands of a bum.
