Turn Around
It’s
a new year,
Waking
up with my hands on my dreads,
Dragging
it backwards intensely and consistently,
It
was just days back I held my pen and paper,
Resolution
they call it,
But
there it was shrunk inside the trash bin,
So
much for old habits,
Folks
say it dies young,
A
bottle of whiskey on my table,
Besides
it; cube of ice in a cup,
Calling
for a refill,
My
ash tray filled with used cigarette sticks,
Flames
from the last stick, floating left to my bed,
On
my bed, a call girl whose name I know not,
A
naked skinny blonde,
I
wondered how she share different beds each night,
Gazing
at her shape,
Drew
my eyes to her bold tattoo,
A
crucifix laying on a bed of roses,
Crafted
on her waist,
Brought
a smile to my face,
Her
profession / Her Faith,
Called
to attention,
The
thought of my deeds came knocking,
I
reached out for my bible,
All
I got was Hebrew 10:26,
A
new path …
