Four Line Blues Poems

“3”

Leaving work.  Taking my dollar bottle
On down the street.  I gambled 
A suitcase of sorrow.  Gonna put
My past hurting on the shelf.

“12”

Friday night gambled on being gone.
Monday morning pay the aching empty.
Where have I put my lost tomorrows?
Highway gone-stole my yesterdays.

Sunday's tears blame Friday's crazy.
Monday's prison tomorrow.
I feel despair knowing this whiskey
From town is where the Preacher been.

Four Line Blues Poems

“9”

I've been down, wrong, lonesome, and empty. 
Aching sleep won't go away. 
Found time don't bottle sorrow. 
Feet moan, floor coming apart.

Four Line Blues Poems

“#1”
I cried a sweet lonesome letter before morning.
Goodbye doctor bills.  Gonna face the
Deep life.  Feeling sick drink trouble.
An aching hearted nobody.
