Anything Simpler

Posted in poem by johnsontoms on July 4, 2011

If it were anything simpler

than a smile and a move

I hope I’d have the answer

But street engagements are hard to find

and harder to work

When all you’ve got is all you’re worth.


Sometimes I think the clothes I wear and the cigarette on my lip

are enough to drag a stare

but that’s where it ends.

I’m just a bum and I keep moving on

Maybe someone will tag along.
