Life After Curfew

Life After Curfew

by Geffrey Jones

Sweetness… I got the shakes… And my

Nerves are shot…  And curfew has come

And gone… It’s somewhere north of

Midnight and I’m still hanging around…

Purposeless… Without a clue… And

Where do we go from here when the

Sun no longer rises for one of us… If you

Go first I’ll be right behind you… Period…

End of story… Hard stop…

 

It’s all a dream to me now… As I toss

And turn… I’m driving home to Jersey…

From here…

 

From this place where lives have been

Merged and purged… And fortunes made

And lost over the decades… Wonderful

Lives… But something is calling me back

East… And I wonder…

 

Is it Jersey I miss or the youth

I misspent there…

 

Maybe it’s both…

 

Who cares…

 

***

 

I can’t tell anymore the truth from the fiction
