she was educating now

other side of the road

driving yet another beat up car

she did not see me

as far as I could tell

I felt my heart beat a little faster

had to pull over soon as

sit for a minute or two

get my breath back



her I would have died for

one sad time in my days

her I had given up most of

everything anything

my friends

last shred of dignity

her I’d reduced myself for

her I’d reached rock bottom

thus far & no further

I swore never

ever to have another

like her

like me

who could would did

give up so much

for so little back

& drove away thinking on

which poor fool

she was educating now
