No Time for Old Men~by Paul Lenzi


 

 

No Time for Old Men

old

“Old Tramp” by Laszlo Mednyanszky

it arrived in a downpour

this too-modern morning

my black and blue flesh

unprepared still not finished

with yesterday’s mayhem

and misery no time to bind

broken bones of the night

now the dawn cracks with

onslaught new gunfire rain

melting all my resolve into

rivers of abject surrender

 

 

From my book Pieces of Wine
