She Was Loaded by John D. Robinson

She Was Loaded
.
Earlier tonight
Miles Davis
take of
‘Time after time’
came from my
radio and the
last time I heard
that was when a
self-destructive
friend knocked
at my door: I
could see that
she was loaded and
she opened up
to me,
I could have
taken the
opportunity
but rolled joints
and poured wine
and when I
awoke I was
alone and when I
saw you next you
were in a casket
and I walked away
from this funeral
as I have done
so many times
before,
time after time.
 .
