Désolée

The_Parisian_Life_by_Juan_Luna
“The Parisian Life (Interior d’un Cafe)” – Juan Luna, 1892

staring
into nowhere
browbeaten
by the
day’s labours;
tossed
to and
fro
by the
crushing crowd
oppressive heat;
stench
of a
thousand cares
reeking.

a moment’s
rest,
a drink;
brief respite
from the
weariness
that breaks
my gait
that breaks
my back.

sipping my
soda,
wishing it
were absinthe
and i
for a
while
could forget.
