heroin days

by Michael A. Flanagan

twenty dollar bill,
crumpled in the left
pocket, found while
picking your jeans
up off the floor

the twenty will get
you two bags, with
that you can work
two more on credit

there's pain near
the kidney though,
on the left side

you're not sure
you can walk very
far, not even sure
you can sit up
very long

you put your jacket
on anyway, open the
door and go
