DOWN ON THE BAYOU

The night grows darker,
the fog moves in 
turning the full moon
into a yellow haze.

Gas pumps on empty
next to the old pickup,
an old man pisses in
the corner shadows

like nobody was around,
he didn’t care because
nobody really cares
down on the bayou.

Livin’ On Bayou Time   3 comments

All-time is created equal,
but we don’t use it equally.
Some are livin’ on bayou time,
while others in a New York minute.

My time is your time,
but it is not mine to give.
You can’t give away
something that isn’t yours.

…unless you share the moment.
