Life, Poetry


on the fountain edge in paris
the warmth strong through my folded arms
he came up to me asked if i wanted heroin
because i looked like one of those who
needed it regularly so i told him fous
moi la paix & he pulled a knife on
me & i said it again & walked off
& he ran after me to force me to buy
& i hit him until he bolted
it may have been a different city
but same country & not the first
time it happened but i never did use
brave enough to resist & live
