I made my way to the temple,
more to set a perfect example.
I looked and turned to the left,
feeling myself quiet adept ;
entered a dirty squalor.
It was old Lucy’s, little bar,
midst neon and fluorescent greens;
I realized after the few sips,
God dwells here in the broken hearts.

Thanks for your thoughts, I’m glad you liked it. I’m usually never high, I rarely take alcoholic drinks, but no harm writing about it though 🙂

Excellent poem, Tanya.
It kind of reminds me of the Billy Joel song Piano Man lyrics, “We’re sharing a drink called loneliness but it’s better than being alone…”
