Every once and awhile, I see a piece of writing nestled between the cute kittens and piano babies that just seems to stand out.
I like it and with the poster’s permission, I share it here. This is just such a piece that caught my eye this morning and kept bringing me back.
These words are by Annaliese Adderly of Largo Fla, They are strong, harsh true and seem to come from someone who knows the words of a Tom Waits song and the beat of Bukowski.
Thank you for the share.
As far as I know this is untitled.
it eats at you
stuffed between the leather seats of a rental car
I’ll never do that again
uttered from the lips of a Governor
found on every filthy Southerner
stirred in a dirty bath tub
in the middle of a two dollar strip club
for smoking ten cartons of cigarets
the one you’ll always regret
but you’re a gambler and you’ve placed your bets
them demons ain’t done with you yet
