A bitter pill implies where I belong

I signed the back of a lottery ticket, filled the name and address clearly.
The night is sleeping but still I am awake in a Gas station to fulfill the boisterous vehicles.
I hear a whisper in my decaying wallet.
'Hey! Dear this is not the winning ticket exactly but a day would be appeared and bring you the lucky chance soon.' The lottery muttered.
After a lazy yawn I speak to myself;
'Nowadays the papers talk much while the poor people shut their mouths as nothing to put in for digest.'

* To Gheorghe Zamfir!
Your divine magical pan flute's notes impress me how to grab the fleeing life?

    A bitter pill? ? One wonders if it be not so bitter but maybe inspirational. I long ago came to see that one's belongings do not belong to him but he belongs to his belongings.10 (Report) Reply

    You manage to touch so many buttons in your work Nimal. The political, imaginative and poetic dimensions of this one are sublime. And Georgie Zamfir will always lift the spirit with his beautiful pan flute. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    'boisterous vehicles', 'decaying wallet' - unusual but striking adjectives that bring this piece to life. (Report) Reply

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
