MPDisplay Poem: King On Main

January 31, 2012

 

King On Main
 
Though the glass I saw myself today
 
Standing on the corner of Hazard's main
 
In the mist of slight lightening and rain
 
Though cloudy and grey as the day truly was
 
I still looked as a king smoking a Marlboro
 
Could it be for a moment in time I was ?
 
"A King !"
 
No it was only visions though mind
 
Just wishful thoughts, same place, different time
 
When I was free and life seemed easy
 
Like words from an old Seger tune
 
Which say
 
Sometimes even now when I feel alone and beat
 
I drift back in time and I find my feet
 
Down on main street
