lonely today

i’m so lonely today
i’m lonely for the pimps and crack whores
coming up with enough dough for
a hobo beer and loosey cigarette
sitting on a stoop because
there is nothing better to do than
shoot the shit
i’m lonely for the hustlers selling
bootleg dvds and cellphone chargers
i’m safe now as he protects my morality
keeps me in a cage with golden bars
my only words are pen to paper
my silence is not self imposed
i want to use my vocal chords
if only to say
i’m lonely today
