2020-08-25 – Solitary Soul

off he rolls,
a solitary soul,

sack tethered to a stick,
a steady stepper,
not born

roll draws to deeper
breath for a toke
and lengthy

lost in a bliss not
bound by

but he’ll never tell,
and well, i see it paintin’
a grin on same old
face dire rains
once fell,

it’s like he’s in on some
joke i’ll never

like he tastes the nectar
from a peach i’ll
never grow,

who really knows
a solitary


offers a shrug,
then off he

…and rolls.
