spent and antiquated

i’ve spent it all –

more than a

few times;

i’ve spent

the money

the women

the memories

the cells

the love

the hope

the words

the bottles,

so many bottles.

i’m on empty

desperate to refuel

so

i

can

do

it

all

over

again,

but i’m afraid,

this time around,

they don’t manufacture

my type of energy anymore.

i’ve used up all

my chances,

and these fumes

will

soon

be

exhausted.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
