‘beauty in your broken’

what has lived

has died;

what has died

shall be reborn again.

‘find a different brew, son’

 

he idled up to the bar

scraggly haired

dirty tattooed

hat low to hide eyes

drowning in bud

 

opening his mouth

he sounded as cheap as

the beer he stunk of.

‘karaoke guy’

 

the karaoke guy

lonelier than the

empty tables waiting

for a song.

 

silence knows lines

no one else can ever sing.

‘it’s in the telling’

 

i have completely tuned them out.

 

i understand how little they respect me.

 

i’m not as detached as i let on.

 

their truth is as fabricated as my smile.
