paul harrison, two poems –

It’s Burning Out

as the pills
& the beers
kick in and
the pictures
of you in
a roiling surf
smiling fade
when tomorrow
the homeless
and broken
will close
me down
just that
little
bit more
realizing
that often
it’s only
what goes
unsaid
that really
counts
and not
the silent
screams
we drown


12 Step Line Break Poem

if i can’t
drink
smoke
inject
yr poem
or turn
it over &
fuck it
forget
about it
cos what’s
the point ?
