To Patrick

Twelve steps down,
an Everlast punching bag
draped from the ceiling
awakens ancient feeling—-

Hands bigger than mine,
and shadows too.

“Close your eyes…”

Vunerable, I reach my arms out
like a sentence, all it needs is a
period, instead my palms sweat,
nervous clenching and hallways
echo a bark—-

the dogs’ name is Lucky,
implying good fortune, but
the only good thing about today
was the bologna sandwich;
given to silence
voice, dream
and childhood.
