Roll back stone

December 4, 2009 § Leave a comment

Driving into Warrensville past Our Lady Queen of Peace
My old friend Tommy says “We still got that at least.”
Fifty six years old. Years of junk and speed and crack.
Tommy says, “Dooley, you know sometimes I think I’m not coming back.”
Pulled into Gaby’s. Drank and talked till way past dark.
Tommy says, “Jesus didn’t die alone. You can read it in Luke or Mark
But sometimes I can’t hardly breathe I feel so alone.”
I say. “Tommy, I got to leave.” Roll back stone.
