anorexic spring (standard:poetry, 107 words)
Author: Finn McKoolAdded: Oct 22 2000Views/Reads: 2750/5Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
just a little melancholy musing

anorexic spring day 

sit in the spring air 

of a new fallen April rain 

smoke a cigarette and 

think of happy times 

sit in April air of 

impending summer 

and think of all that's to come 

as the cigarette burns 

away the fresh day 

into a fresh night 

chip the day away 

like paint on a porch 

in need of repair 

wasting away 

anorexic days 

of little motion 

fresh air but stagnant 

moments in time 

as a pack a day 

burns the year away 

into a summer when 

you're seventy-four 

and you look for the 

time in the cushions of 

your couch and only 

find loose change
