THE NOD

1.

Hair-ron for breakfast
But gravity ain’t his friend
When he’s nodding off

2.

Thank god for this pole
Perfectly placed to catch him
Before he falls down

3.

Public drunkenness
On an arterial street
And “safe passage” route.

4.

Trauma is tricky.
He’s not “just hurting himself”
The children see him
