Nowhere

Moonlit city night strolling
I saw a chance with
Two beautiful young women
With copper
Silk thighs
Teased-covered knee-high
Leather boots, but got
Nowhere so I moseyed
To the corner neon bar
Nihilism missing last call
Winded up nowhere
Which I embraced
Chin UP eyes gazing
Soft into midnight nothing
Hands buried in my
Pockets still walking nowhere
When a voice called,
“Hey man I like that!”
Turned to see a
Shopping bag homeless trying
To hitch a ride calling,
“You out here walking like you ain’t got a care in the god damn world—just strolling—not giving a fuck about anything...I like that.”
Paused smiled nodded did I
And
Wandered into nowhere
