Lady on the Corner

There on the corner

drowning in self pity;

silence drowning out silence;

feeling the pain drip,

quenching the sorrow

from the bottle;

holding memories,

memories deep within

feeling existence;

yet dying inside

her breath, calm;

going in steady motion

with the bottle

that holds her life.
