  • They all have the same problem.
    Chocolate, wine.
    Spirits in a bottle.
    Too much of it.
    Friends don’t let friends.
    The harder they come,
    the harder they fall.
    On those fallen shoulders,
    I walked into an attorney's office
    began divorce proceedings.
    These characters frighten me.
    They live under a cool blue sky
    that turns midnight blue
    when a storm rolls through.
    An orange moon turns silver,
    but green
    to a man with smoked filled, burned eyes.
    An aging patriarch sits
    He’s not dying.
    Stroke survivor.
    It must be hard to learn
    what everyone else already knew.
    That power is possible
