We were so low

We were so low
No tv
No power for the boom box
we’d take a walk
for something better to do
&
Times
just enough times
for it to be worthwhile
but never enough for
It to be a job
We’d find
A half pack of cigarettes
Maybe
enough loose change
to buy a bottle
&
We’d go back
to that unheated
Unloved
room
Back in love with the world
and maybe each other
for another short while
