Harryette Michelle Stanley


Sex. Drugs. Rock and Roll.
Empty heart. Empty Soul.
Push. Pull. Sit. Stand.
Too confused to give a damn.
Gangs. Aids. Suicide.
Role reversals. Tears they hide.
Coffee or a cold draft?
See no future. Only laugh.
Death. Life. The whole charade.
And people say we can't act our age.
