Ringless fingers
scratch nose
rub sore eyes.

Hours of FrozenTrees
Scream passed window seat
Misty tracks ahead
you are missing to me

close to station
Dive hotel, windows open
bedding slumped over sills
Cleaning lady
light blue smock
5’2″ 190lbs
salt & pepper hair, bun
should be enjoying those golden years
beating dust
Spanish mattresses
unmade.
Linen business suits
Armani
black, stylish
whose spouses
know
and ignore

I almost wished I hadn’t quit smoking.

Two day old chewy bread loaf stinky German cheese bitter-sweet French cocoa are no substitute

Hours of FrozenTrees
Sleep passed window seat
