another loss -iii

I was in
      between pages
a book without

You let me stay
with you
one night
a moment's notice

we were friends
our lives derelict

the music
the midnight

      bands like us
cannot make it
no more

 traded street level

         left out
again. in the sunlight
 soon to be

 before dawn

 you were kicking
back. i was several back
packs deep to and from
Magnolia street

several unsavory characters
wanted a piece
of me they
could not catch

       thank god
 for this
