Steady Blues

 

 

caffeinated riffs

at 7 am

old R&B

in the background

while ma smokes

                a last    last

cigarette   window cracked

               tunes seep

seeping    out into sky

 so blue       so blue

                this is how

                we keep it

                  so blue
