“Hell-bend highway”


Hell-bend highway

A Poem by Coyote Poetry


Some folks cannot be saved.


My Brother is free

Always torn and never content.

Being a regular Joe was not so easy for him.

Whiskey and beer dreams.

Paradise blinded by dreams seen
at the bottom of an empty bottles.

We were raised like Brother’s.

He felt no peace in a normal flow of living.

Addiction of life are many.

Sex, Booze and money can bring us to
death gate.

I pray for my Brother in living.

You found some sort of peace in death.

I wish I listen to you more.

I wish I try to understand why the booze
brought peace to your life.

Now I write wasted words.

I will pray you found peace finally.

Hell-bend highway


He told me don’t need to hear your shit.


He asked me are you content?
With your rules and compliant.


You conformed to a system that don’t give
a shit about you.


He drank the whiskey straight.
He offered me a cold beer.


I told him.
I know I’m contaminated with B.S.
My mind is diluted with desires and things I don’t need.


But I won’t be condemned to die alone.
Drinking and no-one giving a shit if I’m dead or alive.


He looked at me.
Looking 20 years older than his age.


Whisper Cousin.
It is too late to save me my Brother.


The hell-bend highway


When you get on it.
Can’t get off.
