Acceptance Charm

She’ll take the river’s trace
over curl      and leaf

and the street’s
dead end,

riveting eyes
even as they blink.

The narcotic’s       benediction.

Renewal. Sleep.

That bed      remains unmade,
stripped of purpose: no

caress     a thigh would
recognize

dark fingers      writing in air

 

dead-end

  2. Whoo! This is a keeper, one that sinks to the bottom of my soul. I’ve known more addicts than I wanted to, all with the same dark lesson and the hope of recovery, taken one step and one day at a time. Great poem here, Robert. Uff-da!
