despondent at 22

despondent at twenty two she
did not know where to go
what to do

classes had ended she
needed a job she
broke up with

she smoked and walked the streets
feeling ditched

filled out applications until
a market took her in
a waitress

her best friend moved
away. by herself the rent she
could not afford to pay

is there hope for me?
she asked the sky

no answer. life came in
little packs like sugar
cup to cup and day
