He’s free

A homeless man staggers

across the parking lot

sits down on the curb

ponders the sickness of

his lost soul.

Rock bottom

self-destruction

hope breathes constantly

but years make it hard

to believe..

His heart holds memories

that torment him

perfection long removed

like his teeth…

So he sits silently

soaking into the pavement

his only comfort is

he’s free.
