Miracle

~~~

 ~~~

I coughed up a pack of

Marlboros & I don’t

even smoke

~

It was another

miracle at

Crossroads Mission

~

I awoke in the

early morning darkness with

snickering sinuses

~

Put on my hiking boots without

socks & in my long-johns

headed for the latrine

~

Over the trash can

I blew my nose then

started coughing

~

Plop ~ there they were

a pack of Marlboro cigarettes

on top of the trash

~

One tramp tra-la-la

miracle

right there at the mission

~

I blamed it on the

dormitory with no air but

40 slumbering men breathing anyway…
