DRINKER

He stood as if to hold up the wall,

looking down, leaning in,

his face obscured.

 

Behind him, a penumbra of wet traffic

lit up a thin stream

ongoing, seeking an outsource,

 

a purpose; at the drain it said goodbye

with a blush of steam,

just enough to remind me

 

of the persistent thud of need

taken from the well

and re-distributed.

Point taken bud.i was trying to be unimpressive as life often is.. but honesty means fuck all on here and if you can fake sincerity you'll get followers,. Upwards and onwards to dignity, ! Take care David.

Apparently at some point we have all ingested particles of Sir Walter Raleigh's pee.

Also this highlights to me the futility of doing just about anything, suits my philosophy pal.

If I wasn't working I'd be drinking...thank goodness for the relief of employment.

David.
