Yesterday

Scattered butts of cigarettes

spell out the Rorschach tests of all his

accumulated yesterdays.

A bird on a wire. Batman.

Playboy cutouts, and emptied out

bottles of rum gather dust.

And slowly but surely

with a scary certainty

every today burns out in half-baked sunlights

and like the dancing smoke

marches on to more yesterdays.
