who knows

Stumbling out of the bowels
of the earth at 3:40 am weighed
down by what parts of my life
I could carry I dropped
my last cigarette.
Bloody Hell!
This is great.
It still fascinates me how this
whole life thing works.
How moments- seconds-
the time it takes to nuke leftovers
can completely uproot an entire existence.
Then as I lurched down the street
I heard someone’s alarm go off.
It’s Sunday morning and someone’s
life was just beginning again as it
did yesterday just as mine was
about to end.
