home…

Henry Miller…Jean Baudrillard…Charles Simic…The Holy Bible…all stacked neatly on a desk with James Joyce and Norman Mailer tossed aside…

on the nightstand sits Bukowski…more Joyce…a play by Mamet…journal entries of Shepard…pictures taken in Paris…

a pair of bi-focals…laundry detergent…cellphone charger…an empty wallet…lay on the counter…

copper mugs…coffee cup…wine glasses…loose change…tarnished pennies…a knife…sits on the bar…no vodka…nor whiskey…those we drank long ago…

old sheets from an old house shared…pillow to rest upon…an Amish quilt…it was comfort i always longed for…some kind of solace…

Unamuno on a leather ottoman…Tragic Sense Of Life…read for encouragement…kept close to the heart…

and there are bills…reciepts…Doctor’s appointments…reminders…see the shrink on Monday…Friday the thearpist…a zen buddhist later this month…calender marked…

but the walls are bare…paintings we collected in Quebec…New York…Chicago…gone…left behind for you to decide their fate…

old jazz albums sold to resale shops…traded in for midnight drinks…diners in Manhattan…gas in a tank…a used coat to keep me warm…

i hit the road 7 years ago when we parted ways…living the life of a vagabond…a gypsy…

homeless shelters…flop-houses…seedy motels…church basements…a Dodge Avenger…under trees in Central Park…bridges in Joplin, MO….these were dwellings in the dark of night…where i slept with one eye opened…where i dreamed with one eye closed…

on the nightstand sits Bukowski…more Joyce…a play by Mamet…journal entries of Shepard…pictures taken in Paris…

now it is 2 in the morning…i write from a rented room i call home…home…home…

this is home…

The writing is based on my surroundings and what I've been surrounded by. This language is coarse and politically incorrect; which I make no apologies for. These characters are not nice and to use any other dialogue would be disingenuine. That being said, I choose to roll the dice. dm seay
