The clown sits on a piss-stained toilet in an empty

bathroom, head in hands,

repetitive praying on each heartbeat like a mantra

that no one else enters. Empty blue

baggie floats on the water,

it could be weeks until payday.

The room smells like shit, either

permanent or from the last person

there. He says it won't continue, gives

thanks to God in his needy moment. But

he's a liar.

Nice.  I hope this is not auto-biographical?  Either way, it is certainly visceral.


Peace my brother.
