look closely



look closely
by Seah Greenhorn


if she could feel

she would see
me

brewing
inside

her trashy cash
no need to hide

our home
this shamble

paints me
not
a sham

with

what life

a gamble
daily

moment to moment

even seconds may be
blessed

or a curse

for who is she
to place blame

around her tight world
my sins her heralds

when game after game
the same after the same

nightly

shameful

when will she stop

she won't

look closely

even
behind her

in her warped mirror

she'd be afraid

though wretched and poor
this specialty

I once abhorred

i found
in her drawer

this one too

PoPs!
