On Those Nights by Mike Meraz

on those nights
when you feel
you have already lived
a thousand lives

the clubs,

the bars,

the women,

the sex,

all seem useless

like a dirty rag
you can’t wipe
your hands on,

or a wrecked car
you can’t drive,

or an old plane ticket
that will no longer take you
where you want to go.
