Poem For My 43rd Birthday

Rating: 2.7

To end up alone
in a tomb of a room
without cigarettes
or wine--
just a lightbulb
and a potbelly,
grayhaired,
and glad to have
the room.

A low-profile 43rd. birthday in 'a tomb of a room', but he appreciates having the rented room. A successful poem of the counterculture. It appealed to me.
