Found Poem #1

Hiding
in an alley
in Providence,
killing some time
I struck up
a conversation
with a random drunk
street person.
Turns out
he’s from Philly.
We talked
about Philly
for a while
and I told him
about the upcoming
NA World Convention.
Then we talked
about recovery
and his times
in and out
of the program
and how the most
he ever
put together
was 7 months.
It was actually
pretty awesome.
I gave him
half a pack
of cigarettes
and we parted ways
