to day

i rode thirty miles
on an old silver schwinn

that i bought for ten bucks
at a yard sale.

if i told you
what for

you might fire me
right then

in the end
it was all

for a cigarette.

rest assured
it was worth it

even with the slow leak

and that hand-pump
from hell

amid three-digit weather

just to wither away

one more desiccant day

in the dolor
of flailing depression.
