wasteland



wasteland

stopping to cross the road
i recognized a junkie
staggering towards me
as a girl with whom
i had once sat at bars
and talked and laughed
her childish face and cheeks
dimpled and sucked out
by heroin.
a mere figment of people
and places past.
like watching my youth
become old and ravaged and tired
as it makes its way across
this grey wasteland.


"i should have been a pair of ragged claws scuttling across the floors of silent seas" T.S. Eliot.
