Coffee in

      PM hours

         lose sleep

    to beggar’s knife

         & belligerence


no one takes

                the time

                       to see

thru my blood shot eyes

              all the horrors


   take the time

        feel the edge

     of the blade

          as it precisely

               makes incisions

           in my flesh


the blood of a poet:

        caffeine & alcohol

                fill the heart

          with verve

    & passionate fury


       & if I ain’t

            lost you yet-- 

     well rest assured

                 I’m still

         working on it
