quiet for now…

his body was wiped out…
hadn’t eaten for days…
just drinkin’ orange juice….
pop a Pringle in his mouth…
small honey bun…

and he stayed up in that room…
lookin’ down below…
dumpsters picked by men in midnight hours…
skinny women runnin’ into abandoned buildings…
a tricycle in the alleyway…

yes…night time was quiet…
the hum of a motorbike…
cop cars and ambulances…
no guns goin’ off yet…
Summer will be here soon…

his body was wiped out…
hadn’t eaten for days…
