these gears are rusted and worn
and the breaks have been squeaking and scrathing themselves raw

I taste the metal from my toes to my tongue
and wash it down with a gallon of gas
barely worth my many iniquities just to travel to one side of town and back

to do it all again
for tomorrow in hopes
that I am gaining on this ride
building on this eternity
one man to another man
this trash and these shoes
are difficult to walk in
with open toes
out in the cold
never forgiving does this wind stop to check on me

I wont waste this morning on a cup of ale
but I am truly greatful for a good nights rest

  Beautiful vivid that I could feel every word without even having to close my eyes and let them sink in.

Wonderfully written.

Indeed each one of us have a lot to be thankful for.

  I taste the metal and wash it down with gas
this is so raw and poignant . This entire write hits me
on a visceral level . Who are we to judge. And the line
with the wind not stopping. I don't care what anyone
says that there is just poetry.
