The Last Cry

Roderick Richardson


I’m trapped in a black hole called

A small town.

Where there is plenty of nothing

To do but sit around and dream

About the things of your lust. Seems

To me people should try to make

A difference in this but really

we don’t cause we like being nothing.

There’s lots of job security. I

would love this but I’m cursed

With an open mind and a close

Wallet. The only people who’s

Listening is J. D. and the booze-

A knife gains interest before I doze.
