Curbside Angels

Curbside angels
with broken wings
beg for smokes
and some spare change.

With just one fix
they’ll fly away


Smoke, Bug Out, Repeat

Piss sink hotel
Crack stem dead end

Sirens sound
Neighbors shout

Pipe gets lit
Eyes bug out

You tell yourself
Just one more hit


Your P. D.’s Finest, Hard at Work 

Bloody noses,
boots on necks,
AK muzzles
at backs of heads,

pleas of innocence
lost in winds.

This is where
our taxes went?!


Final Road Trip

His parked car running
on a back forty street
with garden hose connecting
tail pipe to window.

A woman walks by, mumbling,
“The things people do
just to get high.”

He waves goodbye.


Never Know What You’ll Find

Back alley dumpsters
possess all sorts
of wonders . . .

like poets
looking for a meal.
