She Got The Blues

She Got The Blues…

dust particles whirl

in the sunbeams

through the glass windows

that are no longer

rose colored for us

reality came along

wearing the biggest pair ever

of shit kicking boots

that altered the course of time

kicking our coming of age virtues

to the curb on the streets

where we all lived

shaming us, for such naïveté

crystal clear windows of our souls

now cracked,

splintered,

broken

or auctioned off

to the first buyer, sold!

a weight so heavy

on her mind

so much so

she got the blues…
