Manny glares upward

psychiatrist eyes down

Manny spins wheelchair

blank slate wall

 

psychiatrist eyes down

last chance. no return.

blank slate wall

same crowd, same drugs

 

last chance. no return.

despair a statement

same crowd, same drugs

bold mustache quivers

 

despair a statement

legless body, full of fight

bold mustache quivers

damn stumps, damn doctor.

 

legless body, full of fight

machismo emanates

damn stumps, damn doctor.

twisted silver chain hangs

Jesus, tormented, outstretched

answer above, below, within.

crawl through parched desert

raw guttural screams

 

answer above, below, within.

pierce the air like knives

raw guttural screams

thunder down halls

Manny glares upward.

Let's be friends
