Start Over

A New View


All my stuff gone

all my life drowned

in sludge

all my mind a mess

all gone.


Start overs

are for other people.

I do end overs.


I just have to let

my past drag as I limp

along and let it take

the occasional

nip from the old

heels of idiocy.


New beginnings

happen extemporaneously

because of some long

ago hole I climbed out

of but got dirt

in my sock.

We Don't Get Do-Overs

We live with the left-overs.
