Old Man

I am an old man. I am sitting alone in the dark, drinking Bud, and smoking Camel non-filter cigarettes. (I know, earlier in the day, I said I would not be a smoker again. What I did not say is that was contingent upon how well my day would go.)

I have sat here, just like this, for so many nights it seems as if I arrived at my destination. And I have. I kept hoping such was not the case. You cannot blame a person for hoping.

Unless you are young, this city is not made for you–an old man sitting alone in the dark, drinking Bud, and smoking non-filter Camel cigarettes.
